The Marketing Difference
To get the most from your Chamber membership, I recommend that you attend events where your best prospects are most likely to attend. If you target small companies, then the Network Connection Series events are where you'll have a chance to meet and interact with many small company members of the Chamber. 

If your best prospects are mid-size and large companies, you should attend Chamber events that attract larger numbers of Chamber companies and Board members. Typically, these are the Chamber's signature events such as the Pinnacle Awards Dinner, Holiday Party and the Good Morning South Jersey events. 

Maximize the value of your Chamber membership and target those events where you'll have a chance to build relationships with your best prospects!
