NMB Chamber to hold mass membership event Tuesday

North Myrtle Beach, SC - NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – It's a race against the clock for volunteers with the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce hoping to sign up the highest number of new members in the organization's annual membership event.

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Membership Event will kick off on Tuesday at the Avisa Resort. It is slated to run through Thursday.

The event is organized by "Your Chamber Connection," whose specialty is high-energy membership campaigns.

"Our membership is the lifeblood of the organization, and not only will this event strengthen our membership base through recruitment of new members, but suddenly we have generated more than 200 local business volunteers many of whom have never been involved with the Chamber beyond paying their annual dues.  This leadership will carry into roles as committee chairs, and future board members adding to our effectiveness in the community," stated Marc Jordan, President/CEO of the Chamber.

The mission of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce is to be recognized as the premier business organization serving the North Myrtle Beach area and its business members by providing quality products, programs, and services while influencing issues that enhance the economic prosperity of our community.

In August 2009, the Accrediting Board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce designated the North Myrtle Beach Chamber as an Accredited chamber with four stars.
