Dear ____,

As a follow up on our {conversation/email/phone message}, and I would like to schedule a time we could meet at the Chamber for a cup of coffee, or at your office, so I can learn more about your goals and give you a better understanding of how the Chamber may help you reach them.
In the meantime, I have provided some additional information (after my contact information) about how the B/CS Chamber of Commerce can help you grow your business and connect you and your employees to the community.  Membership has its privileges -- and we hope we get the privilege to welcome you as one of our fellow members.

On behalf of the Chamber and its board of directors we hope you take us upon our personal invitation to join our growing network of trusted, respected and connected community leaders.

Thank you for your time and consideration or our invitation.

Burl Haigwood

A Very Special Community of Interest

The Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce is the premier B2B network in the Brazos Valley.  Our members likely include many in your target market. We have a network that includes tens of thousands of employees, their friends, families and related member organizations. They all strive for opportunity through unity – and it shows. They do their best to support other Chamber Members  that are also Trusted, Respected, and Connected.  

The Chamber is a non-profit organization with many direct and indirect benefits.  We exist “to enhance the economic well-being of the businesses in the community it serves” – like yours.  Our 1,400+ membership-base includes Fortune 100 companies, small and medium-sized businesses, non-profit civic organizations, divisions of Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M University System, Blinn College, churches, representatives of local governments, students and individuals – just to name a few.

Corporate Exposure & Community Outreach

The Chamber’s ninety-six year history is steeped in tradition and success.  The Chamber has several print, electronic and event opportunities that help members promote their business. We also have over 100 professional networking events and meetings throughout the year to help you engage with leading local business owners, civic/government/academia leaders – and potential new friends and customers.
Employee Retention & Quality of Life

Whether you or your employees are new to business, the community, or both, the Chamber creates immediate opportunities for people to meet fellow professionals and connect with community leaders who share similar interests and values.  We have 12 different committees, great Leadership programs and special volunteer opportunities that can support some of your personnel goals. If you agree that Business is Personal – you may also agree volunteer for the Chamber is great way to develop new business relationships.
