March 21, 2017
Business attraction & retention is essential work for the Greater Irvine Chamber. All members depend upon a healthy and robust economy from which to acquire customers. So, work with us to improve this economy! Join us and plug into a few of the important projects we are working on:
- Business Outreach Rally planning – volunteer to help plan and participate. It’s your opportunity to gain access to area companies under the banner of the Chamber!
- Large Company Outreach – contribute to the execution of a new large company outreach designed to connect and engage with them better and create impactful relationships.
- Startup Eco-system development – learn about and participate in the exploration and launch of a new co-branded “platform” to help startups grow faster and integrate into the business community.
- Irvine New Member Mentoring – just getting started – how can we help new members navigate our active calendar and integrate into the Chamber community to improve the experience and retention.
