Member Visits Informative

Building on the success of the staff visits to Chamber members in 2011, Chamber staff embarked on visits to 74 more members in 2012. The intent of the visits was two- fold: meet with the owner or manager of the business one-on-one; and conduct a brief survey. A survey is a good way for the Chamber Board to engage the membership. The survey consisted of 6 questions:

  1. How is the Chamber doing? Is it visible in the community? Is it providing enough networking opportunities for the business community?
  2. Are you receiving the Chamber’s email blasts and the Courier? Are they useful?
  3. What could the Chamber be doing better?
  4. Would you be interested in participating in brief email surveys from the Chamber?
  5. What works better for you- Business Breakfast or Business Lunch?
  6. The Chamber’s Celebrate Business Success Awards, Employee Recognition Event and the Chamber Business Dinner are 3 unique events to Yorkton. How would you rate each of these?

The member visits were very positive. Members were pleased that “someone from the Chamber” was formally visiting their businesses. The Chamber staff appreciated that the Managers took time from their busy schedules to show off their premises and discuss future plans.

At the end of the year, the Chamber had 445 members.

The businesses also appreciated the brevity of the interviews. All businesses were informed about the upcoming Chamber election of Directors; the duties of each of the 4 committees; and the various activities and events offered by the Chamber. All businesses were asked 2 questions: How do you perceive the Chamber to be doing in the community? (Is it speaking for the businesses in Yorkton? Is it providing networking opportunities?) What could the Chamber be doing better? (How might the Chamber engage its members?) All businesses were asked if they preferred Business Breakfasts or Lunches. As the interview process evolved, 76 businesses were also asked about participating in a brief email survey if ever a big issue was facing the Board. Overall, the Chamber members are content with the job the Chamber is doing. It’s perceived as being “important” and “useful”. Only one business suggested the Chamber “take a hard stand on issues.”
