When Brian was involved with other chambers in the past, he says he felt lost at most of the massive events he attended and was disappointed that Ambassadors were unable to invest time with him. He says he is thrilled to be experiencing the opposite with the Glendale Chamber.
“The Glendale Chamber’s size is reasonable and I’ve been able to develop professional and personal relationships in a shorter period of time,” he says. “The events are more personable and it is wonderful to share time with many of the area’s business owners.”
He continues, “This organization has been an important part of our business’ marketing efforts. We gain additional exposure through the Chamber website and have been able to meet a number of members which has resulted in business leads and opportunities.”
Recently appointed as an Ambassador, Brian says he makes sure that no one has the same aimless experience in Glendale that he had at other chambers’ events.
“I am honored to serve as an Ambassador for the Glendale Chamber,” he says. “I remember the lost feeling I had when I attended an event at a larger chamber and I use this as incentive to make sure everyone at our events feel welcome.”
Brian points out that his business has benefited greatly as a result of his membership and as an Ambassador he wants to pass that along to others.
“It is exciting to meet new Chamber members and assist with quality introductions that may help their business,” he explains. “Additionally, I am able to meet new and prospective Glendale businesses, which allows me to have an impact on how and who their business will interact with in the community.”
