The Grand Junction Area Chamber is in the final three weeks of our campaign to generate financial resources to expand programs for the community and chamber members.
Our goal is to secure $175,000 and 75 new members in a “total resource campaign” that will provide the Grand Junction area with a properly funded chamber of commerce capable of accomplishing key initiatives in the community and the Chamber is quickly closing in on that goal, but needs your help.
The Chamber is dedicated to improving community infrastructure, sound public policy and economic growth, all of which lead to a more successful and vibrate community.
Money raised in the Creating a Bright Future campaign is slated for memberships, event sponsorships, advertising and key initiatives like business retention and expansion.
Reaching this ambitious goal involves the assistance of more than 60 volunteers from over 12 different companies.
The Campaign Co-Chairs are Clay Tufly, Alpine Bank and Pat Tucker, Conquest Developments. Joining them in the campaign are Campaign Vice-Chairs: Kathy Hall, Hall and Associates and Lisa Boyd, No Coast Sushi.
Campaign teams include: Alpine Bank, FCI Constructors, Bank of Colorado, Shaw Construction, Community Hospital, CPC Solutions, St. Mary’s Hospital, Office Depot, Home Loan Insurance, Express Employment Professionals, OBJ Group, Chamber Diplomats and two small business teams.
Friday, November 18 is the final day of the fundraising effort.
“We have incredible volunteers who have made this happen,” said Diane Schwenke, Chamber President & CEO. “People are busy, but it’s clear that the business community wants an effective, properly funded chamber of commerce.”
There is still time to invest in the campaign and we need help from you, our current members.
