Chamber of Commerce Connects Training, Entrepreneurs
As president of her local chamber of commerce, Anne has seen how healthcare costs, regulations and other factors have forced those local entrepreneurs to cut their number of employees. That just makes their work days even longer. Training for entrepreneurs didn’t seem to be an option with those long hours.
Anne doesn’t see too many of the chamber members at networking events, after-hours programs or ribbon cuttings.
“And in this social media age, they don’t need the chamber for connections, with Facebook and LinkedIn,” she said.
She and her chamber board formed a TFE Chamber Alliance with Training for Entrepreneurs.com (TFE) to bring value to members of the chamber to help them with the bottom line.
