The Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce is looking to expand. With several new business openings in the past year, Chamber President and CEO Steve Bull says they decided to get volunteers together and have a telethon of sorts.
There are more than 1,000 members currently in the Chamber.
100 volunteers will call friends and potential new members over the next two days acting as goodwill ambassadors, touting the benefits of being a Chamber member.
The group is the largest and the regional chamber for northern Fairfield County. The service region is the Danbury Labor Market Area.
The Chamber sent out mailings to 10,000 prospects in hopes of giving the Chamber a shot in the arm. In an effort to entice businesses into joining, Bull says they will provide marketing incentives valued at about $5,000.
Bull says Greater Danbury continues to do very well, even when the rest of the state is in a decline.
