The Chamber Diplomats are volunteers who strive to attend all Chamber events and welcome and encourage participation of other Chamber members. At events such as Business After Hours, Diplomats seek out new Chamber members to make sure they feel welcomed and part of the Chamber family. Diplomats embody the positive attitude that membership in the Chamber helps to grow business and strengthen the community. The volunteer efforts of the Diplomats are vital to all aspects of the Chamber as a whole.
Perry Diplomats commit to attend monthly meetings, make member calls, mentor new members, attend Ground Breakings, Ribbon Cuttings, Business of the Month awards, Business After Hours events, and Speed Networking events as time allows.
This committee is responsible for the following projects:
Membership Recruitment Team – Assist in the annual efforts of recruiting new members to the Perry Chamber.
Business After Hours - This is a networking opportunity for Chamber members that takes place after 5:00 pm. These events are held seven times each year. Our October Business After Hours is sponsored jointly with the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce. Members pay a small fee to attend these events.
Speed Networking – This is a networking opportunity for Chamber members that is held twice each year and takes place during different times of the business day. During the event, everyone in attendance has the opportunity to give their company sales pitch to all others present. Local businesses are asked to sponsor the food & location, giving them the benefit of showcasing their products and/or services. There is a fee charged to attend.
