Referrals and Introductions for Meaningful Connections

with Susan Williams, Venango Chamber President/CEO

Networking and connecting continue to be among the most valued benefits of belonging to the Chamber, but are often misunderstood or underutilized. It may be assumed that you must attend a mixer or event to meet someone new or reconnect with other members. For many, this is great, but Chamber staff is ready to assist you with introductions outside of events.

You can contact us to discuss who you ”need to know” and we’re happy to assist you with an introduction, via email, a phone call, or even a shared meeting. The more we know about you and your business, the more qualified these referrals are, so we encourage you to make certain all your member information is up to date and we invite you to chat with any of our staff to assure we know what’s going on in your business.

Additionally, we appreciate introductions, too! We hope you’ll think of us when working with other businesses and organizations, whether it is someone who isn’t a member (yet) or perhaps a member who could use a reminder of what the Chamber is up to. We all benefit when we grow the Chamber and our knowledge of each other!
