The Androscoggin County Chamber’s member services committee meets bimonthly for an hour and makes retention calls. The chamber gets good feedback from those who are called. They also have a very active group of ambassadors at all chamber events who are on the lookout for members who look like they need help in meeting people. This has been very successful and gains lots of good comments. For the retention calls, the committee discusses and plans out different questions to ask each month and then records the questions/answers with the assignees on the Membership Retention Form. Questions can be:
- How are things going for your business/organization?
- What can the chamber do to help?
- Do you have any input on the chamber and the programs we bring to members?
- And others; by reviewing different questions on a regular basis, this ensures that relevant and current responses drive the retention and enables the chamber to adjust to meet members’ needs.
