Some may say a goal of $300,000.00 is impossible, unimaginable, even inconceivable but the San Antonio Chamber put together what many will say is beyond belief. This event is one that has broken practically every one of Your Chamber Connection’s membership records.
The San Antonio Chamber recruited 10 of the city’s top leaders to head up their 2017 Membership Event. In a typical 3-day event, 147 volunteers came together with an energy, vigor and a determination to raise the highest dollar amount ever – $300,000.00. Needless to say, they blew past their goal only after a day and a half. Team Energy quickly took the lead and raised $147,000.00 followed closely by Team Green with $129,000.00 raised. The one that trumped them all with a last-minute hand in of 16 sales was Team Red, Mark Johnson Jr. totaling $155,000.00!
By Thursday at 3:27pm the San Antonio Chamber had recruited 273 new members and raised over $501,000.00! The average dollars sold per volunteer was over $5,223.00 and the average dollars sold per team was $15,671.00. Don’t ever doubt the power of your volunteers!
Congratulations on a record breaking membership event, it is one for the record books!
