The Elephant in the (Board) Room
ChamberMaster recently surveyed hundreds of chamber professionals, asking about everything from renewal stats and member communication tactics to staff health insurance coverage and mobile payments… plus a whole lot more.
But, there was one question that opened a Pandora’s box of responses:
What do you wish your board realized?
We heard about board members who won't attend events, those who simply don't understand what it takes to run a chamber, and many who don't "get" the amount of work vs. the amount of manpower/resources available.
Sifting through hundreds of answers to the questions, our team uncovered seven common themes. Two of the biggest complaints? The lack of resources for adequate staffing and the board members not realizing how hard their chamber staff works.
Download the report to see the rest of the responses, including:
- “I do more than just socialize.”
- “Bigger committees aren’t better committees.”
- “Chambers are no longer a staple in company budgets.”
