Take Five: Resources & Best Practices from Today
It may be nearing 10:00 p.m., but it's finally Friday! Here are 5 take-aways from the day for Chamber leaders and some great leads to help your team plan for next week:

  • Free Webinar on Tuesday Sponsorships & Social Distancing - How to Repackage Benefits in the Age of COVID19 presented by Jason E Ebey, IOM: STOP. . . Do not move all your programming cancelled by COVID-19 to the end of 2020. Your Chamber can still provide value to current sponsors and identify some unique opportunities for new sponsorships for the remainder of the year. A strategic review of your schedule and the financial impacts to the Chamber’s bottom line is needed to mitigate COVID-19’s effects on your Chamber. This webinar is set for 3:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, April 28th. Here is the registration link.

  • Shout Out To the Southwest Indiana Chamber: And all the partners involved with the COVID team in Evansville for their Reopen Evansville website which highlights five key areas identified with key contacts listed for each.

  • Managing Member Renewals Webinar: In ICEA's continued pursuit to provide meaningful COVID-19 resources, we are fortunate to bring you a three-part membership webinar series devoted to addressing the challenges faced by membership professionals everywhere. Please do not wait to register. The Holman Brothers are providing these webinars to chambers across the United States and Canada. Webinar topics/dates include: Managing Member Renewals (April 30 @ 2:00 p.m. EST); How to Build Your Pipeline (May 7 @ 2:00 p.m. EST); and Preparing Your Membership Team for What's Next (May 14 @ 2:00 p.m. EST).

  • Masks, Temperature Scanners and More: If you missed the Thursday episode of Path Forward from the U.S. Chamber, I highly encourage you to listen in this weekend as it addresses some of the key areas of concern for Indiana business leaders.

  • Federal Reserve Survey: Attention Chamber leaders in Northern/Central Indiana . . . . the Chicago Federal Reserve Office has launched a survey for businesses. If you can forward this link with an invitation from your Chamber to your membership or target some of your key business leaders, you'll help paint the picture for the Federal Reserve on how the COVID-19 outbreak has affected businesses in the midwest and will help Federal Reserve Policymakers make better-informed decisions moving forward. I believe this survey is open until Friday, May 1.  
Cheers to the weekend! Take some time for you -
