Chamber adds more than 250 new members in November

Ed Linck

Thanks to 175 devoted volunteers, 247 new members joined the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce over the span of three days, bringing our November new-member total to 255. The 2017 membership event makes the fourth time the Conway Area Chamber has partnered with Your Chamber Connection, an organization that offers chambers of commerce a unique approach to improving membership, volunteerism, and the bottom line.

2017 Membership Event - Conway Area Chamber of Commerce - Conway, Arkansas

At the end of the event, the volunteers were invited to attend a celebration and awards ceremony at Fat Daddy's Bar-B-Que. We are grateful to be surrounded by community-minded people who are committed to making Conway an even better place to live and work. View additional photos from the 2017 Membership Event on Facebook.

Congratulations to our volunteers who received recognition!
