Topeka, Kansas – 169 New Members!


The Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce hosted their first membership event with Your Chamber Connection and they blew away all expectations!  Over the three day period volunteers young and old packed out the Performing Arts Center not quite sure what to expect.  

Wendy Wells, Board Member, described what the event did for them, “We needed to revitalize and re-energize our membership, we needed new members and we got them!  The volunteers were full of energy; it was fun, it was exciting, it was hard work but it was gratifying!”

Brent Boles, Chair of the Chamber, summed it up with this, “We had the opportunity to do something we have never done before.  We brought in YCC to help us understand what it would take to bring in new members and educate our community.  We did both!  We brought in 169 new members!  It was a success not only from a membership stand point but from an educational standpoint!”

Congratulations to the Greater Topeka Chamber, their Board, Staff and Volunteers on a successful event; 169 new members and over $72,000.00 raised!
