1. LCOC GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
It is already time for our next general membership meeting! last week at the Captain's Inn. We will be hosting our local candidates tonight. Each candidate will have a couple of minutes to address the membership, and we will then allow the members and candidates to mingle so that we have a chance to meet the candidates and let them know what is important to us as business owners in Lacey. We will get started with open networking at 6:30, and the meeting will start at 7:00.
Also, we are preparing for the last delivery of welcome bags for 2014. This is open to all current members of the Chamber and is free of charge!! We are sending out 183 bags this time; so we are looking for members to supply 183 of their promotional materials to be stuffed into the bags and then sent out to the new homeowners in Lacey. (Remember that we cannot store any extra materials; if you give us more than 183 items, the extras will be discarded.) If you would like your promotional materials included, you can bring them to the general membership meeting tonight or our next meeting scheduled for November 12. If you cannot make a meeting, you can drop the materials off during regular business hours at the Coldwell Banker Riviera Realty office on Lacey Road (just off the Parkway).
2. HELP THE CHAMBER GROW
Bring a potential new member with his or her business card to our LCOC meeting next month (or any month on the second Wednesday at the Captains Inn at 6:30pm), and the guest gets a free dinner! (The current member only pays for their own dinner.) The guest must be brought by a current LCOC member and must be in a position to be able to consider joining our chamber with the business they are representing on their business card. (Limit one free dinner per guest.) The LCOC Board thought this might be a nice, low-pressure way of inviting guests to see our Chamber in action. Once they visit, how could they not join?!?
3. LCOC TRUNK OR TREAT
The Lacey Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Trunk of Treat event on Saturday, October 25, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. We would love to see our members out there promoting their businesses and giving out treats. The event is being promoted through the local schools and day care centers as well as online. Should be a great time!
4. LCOC EVENTS COMMITTEE
There will be an Events Committee meeting on October 21, at 6 pm at the Home Turf offices (3 Union Blvd., Barnegat, NJ; across from Big Lots). All members that are interested in joining the committee and helping with upcoming events (Trunk or Treat, Christmas Party, Multi-Chamber Networking Event, Comedy Show) are asked to attend.
5. LCOC BOARD ELECTIONS
November is fast approaching! We have three Chamber Board seats up for election. If you are interested in serving on the Board, it is a great time and a great way to get your name out there even more! Let a current Board member know if you are interested, or feel free to call Jason Henbest, Chamber Board Secretary, at 609-709-2805.
