FOOTHILLS CHAMBER REACHES OUT FOR COMMUNITY INPUT Now Fielding 2021 Member & Sponsor Survey
TRYON, NC . . . April 20, 2021 – The Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce (CFCOC) plans to be at the center of the regional recovery now underway. And they want to hear from you. This week the Foothills Chamber is distributing the Spring 2021 Member & Sponsor Survey to its constituents via email and their website (www.carolinafoothillschamber.com).
Chamber President, Cato Junge, welcomes their viewpoints on the CFCOC mission, as well as types of programs and events to help meet those goals. “Our Chamber membership, and supportive Sponsors like First Citizens Bank and Duke Energy, have long-standing interests all over the region,” Junge said. “It only makes sense to tap into their ideas how to serve the economic development and social needs of Columbus, Landrum, Saluda, and Tryon.”
CFCOC Executive Director, Don Borreson, is hopeful that additional segments of the community will participate in the survey, along with current Chamber members. “We want everyone to know their voice matters — and have them weigh in on the Chamber direction,” Borreson said. “There are lots of business associations and social organizations, all doing great work to enhance and celebrate our way of life. There is a lot of energy to collaborate, and opportunities to capitalize on the cultural strengths and natural assets in the area. We think the Survey is an excellent tool to take the pulse of the entire Foothills.”
The survey is anonymous and confidential. It consists of ranking and rating questions, along with ‘open comment’ questions to share personal ideas and recommendations. The questionnaire contains a brief section at the outset about the respondent’s type of business and length of time living in the Foothills. It then devotes 10 questions to the Chamber Vision, activities it should focus on, key membership benefits, and the unique characteristics of the region to showcase. It typically takes approximately seven to ten minutes to complete the survey.
CFCOC plans to hold survey participation open through May 20th, then tabulate and analyze findings to publish results by the end of May. It represents a small investment of time now – that could yield significant advantages to the Foothills region for the future.
Please go here to participate in the survey.
