in Chamber’s Total Resource Development Campaign

Each year, the Mobile Area Chamber organizes a total resource development campaign with volunteers and staff recruiting new members,securing sponsorships for Chamber events and more to help the Chamber continue its mission of being a progressive business advocate.

As part of the campaign, the group is led by a leader in the community. Mark Hieronymus of Hieronymus CPAs agreed to serve as chairman for 2016.

“The Mobile Area Chamber has been a catalyst to a majority of the growth and changes we are seeing in Mobile,” said Hieronymus. “With the Chamber’s leadership and vision, Mobile is becoming a prominent place on the map. To continue this momentum, we all need to get involved to make Mobile a quality place to live and work.”

Hieronymous is encouraging prospective members to join with the Chamber’s 2,000 members, representing 110,000 employees, to continue making the area strong. Members are the life blood of the Chamber.

“Teams benefit from the exposure and networking with other volunteers and it’s a link to developing stronger relationships with customers,”said Carolyn Golson, the Chamber’s vice president of membership.

“The volunteers can let their customers know about opportunities available at the Chamber and can also use their involvement with the campaign to open doors with potential customers.”

When asked why she participates each year, Sharon Murrill with Alabama Power Co.,said: “I participate to enjoy the friendship with fellow Chamber Chase volunteers,to network with employees of other companies,and help grow the Chamber. Mobile has so much to offer and I want to be a part of the growth.”

James Alexander of Bancorp South added: “I participate because I believe the Chamber is an essential driver of economic development in our community, which directly results in more jobs, better salaries and ultimately a higher standard of living in our community. I also enjoy the camaraderie that is the foundation of Chamber Chase.”

The Chamber Chase campaign officially kicks off with a breakfast on Thursday,May 5, with a goal of $1,130,000 in memberships, sponsorships, advertisements and in-kind sponsorships.
