Colerain Chamber Newsletter | January 2018 | Issue 30
Chamber President Debra Stonehill
Our 2018 goal is to grow our Chamber, and I'm excited to offer a new incentive for current members to recruit new members! You can earn $50 in cash if a new member joins (i.e., pays their first year dues) without involving Chamber staff, and identifies you as their referral. The membership application is on our website, and new members may join online. Easy peasy!
I encourage you to review our 2018 event plan to see the great member programs this year (and share it with your new member prospects!). The workshops focus on the most-requested topics from our member survey, providing great learning opportunities for you and your staff. Third Thursdays are excellent for networking, and we'll again enjoy our popular new member receptions, awards, and gala dinners.
The best time to recruit a new member is NOW! Free Movie Night & New Member Reception is coming up on February 28, and it's the perfect chance for new members to be recognized! See below for more info.

Next Event: New Member Reception & FREE Movie Night at Xscape
On Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 5 pm, you're invited to Xscape Theatres in Northgate for a FREE movie and reception to celebrate new members who joined our Chamber since August, 2017. This is a popular annual event - thanks to our sponsor, Xscape Theatres - and this year we'll see Game Night. This comedy mystery stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, and will be loads of fun!
New Members will have a chance to win special prizes and present their business "elevator speech." We'll have movie munchies for everyone, door prizes, and more. Members are invited to bring spouses and staff (no children), but you must register in advance by Feb. 26. No drop-ins.
