Chamber of Commerce adds 120 new members

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce recruited about 120 new members into the business organization during its recent new member drive.
Skip Wood of Community One Bank, the Chamber’s Membership chairman, led the annual new member recruitment effort with 60 volunteers.
“We challenged the volunteers to reach an aggressive goal and, once again, they came through for us,” Wood said.
The team selling the most new memberships was led by Wood and recruited 25 new members. Terry Whitesell of Community One Bank was the top individual sales person with 14 new members. The second annual Banker’s Cup also was awarded to Community One Bank for sales efforts.
Team captains for the 2008 drive were Dorothy Gaskin (SunTrust Bank), Cathy Griffin (Century 21 Towne & Country), Judy Grissom (Rowan Salisbury Schools), Doug Holmes (Holmes Iron & Metal), Brian Miller (Citizen’s South Bank), Dave Morton (Morton Engineering), Mark Seifel (Square D IPaCS), Bob Skelton (Rowan Regional Medical Center Foundation), Randy Welch (Duke Energy), Candace Williams (Community Bank of Rowan) and Skip Wood (Community One Bank).
The Chamber sets aside a few days each year to recruit new members. The effort provides an annual injection of new members, volunteers and financial support necessary to accomplish the organization’s many goals and objectives.
“The Rowan County business community has rallied around the Chamber and we now have almost 1,100 members. Because of this tremendous support, the Chamber is better positioned to lead the business community forward and meet head-on the many challenges we face,” said Chamber Chairman of the Board Seamus Donaldson of Community Bank of Rowan. “We can’t thank enough the new members who have joined us and the many volunteers who played a part in this tremendous success.”
Linda Sherrill is membership director for the Chamber. Membership is available to any firm, association, corporation, partnership or estate having interest in the Chamber’s mission and objectives. For more information, contact the Chamber at 704-633-4221 or visit www.rowanchamber.com.
