The Chamber celebrated as the ribbon 🎀 was cut for new member, Sydnee’s Pet Grooming.
It's always appreciated when Chamber members, including Ambassadors, and surrounding businesses come out to show their support too. Various governmental official representatives presented welcome certificates to Sydnee’s ownership.
We give special thanks to Alice Dong, family to the ownership team, for capturing two Directors caricatures. #wearethefunchamber #mvchamber #ribboncuttings #missionviejo #buylocal #shoplocal
Today, a small group of Ambassadors and Directors paid visits to local businesses discussing the many benefits of joining the Chamber of Commerce.
The Group consisted of: Donna Lang Stoffel (Director/Ambassador, of Heightened Health), John Rodriguez (Director/Ambassador, of iFinance Mortgage), Cody Abril (Ambassador/Communications, of New Generation Dentistry), and Ashley Brunier (Ambassador, of Waste Management).
The focus was on business owners with little time to participate in networking events and therefore may hesitate to join the Chamber. We demonstrated (with Cody and Ashley, younger representatives of their respective businesses) that business owners might be able to identify another trusted employee to attend and represent their business interests at Chamber-sponsored events and help to build more solid business relationships that could lead to increased referrals and closed business.
Many businesses showed positive interest in becoming Chamber members, some immediately and others in the very near future. The "group" even stopped by to visit fellow Chamber member, Julie Schmidt, of Team Logic IT. So great seeing you, Julie!
We thank Donna, John, Cody, and Ashley for taking a couple hours of their busy day to participate in this important campaign. #mvchamber #missionviejochamber #missionviejo #wearethefunchamber #communityoutreach #millennialcampaign
Many visitors come to our Chamber Daybreaker's Networking Breakfast on Tuesday's. After visiting twice, our guests generally decide whether or not the Chamber is a good fit for them and their business.
Director and Ambassador Chair, John Rodriguez (iFinance Mortgage) scheduled a one-to-one appointment with guest, Bethany Pryor (Bethany Pryor Photography) to see how she enjoyed her Daybreaker's experience. Bethany truly enjoyed meeting so many professionally-minded business owners who enjoy building long-lasting relationships and referring business to each other.
Bethany plans on joining the Chamber now! Please enjoy this brief video interview giving us a little more information on Bethany's photography services. #mvchamber #missionviejochamber #missionviejo #powerofvideomarketing #onetoonesarevital
Big kudos to our very own Chamber Director and Membership Chair, Linda Rippin, for taking the lead as MC at the Grand Re-Opening & Ribbon 🎀 Cutting for The Gateway Center, in partnership with new Chamber member and the management team, the Gerrity Group and Pub Thirty-Two.
So great seeing many Chamber members and supporters attending this special event, including Directors and Ambassadors, Mayor Raths, our City Liaison, Larry Longenecker, and various County, State, and Federal governmental representatives.
We welcome the new businesses that have come to The Gateway Center too! #wearethefunchamber #mvchamberambassadors #ribboncuttings #mvMayorRathsinthehouse
