Monroe Chamber of Commerce Hosts Membership Event


Monroe Chamber of Commerce hosted a membership event featuring all the trappings of a party and a competition together. According to Jeremy Harrell with Guaranty Bank, it's an effort to have fun while bringing in new members. Ivan Hendricks, from Candor Wealth Partners, explains that there are 7 teams competing to bring in the most new members and raise the most dollars for the Chamber.

Harrell says, "The Chamber does not deal with parades, but it does help newly graduated students with their future networks".
The Membership Event was from January 31 to February 2. Guest speaker Jimmy Cusano, who is a motivational speaker, appeared for the event. New members can look forward to many benefits like more network opportunities. Find out more at 318-323-3461or visit
The organization is driven by memberships that help fund support for the organization. The Chamber interfaces businesses with local government to bring those represented closer.
