Chamber announces Rowan Originals campaign results

SALISBURY — The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce has announced that the Rowan Originals Campaign brought in 50 new members and $106,844 in total investments, which exceeded the chamber’s goal of raising $75,000.

“We are proud of all our volunteers who worked so hard in the campaign. We introduced the new tiered benefit program for 2018 with great success,” said Janet Spriggs, chief operating officer for Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and chairwoman-elect of the chamber.

The top producer was Daniel Matangira of Matangira Recycling, who had 12,815 points. Matangira won a vacation package valued at more than $2,500.

Other top producers included Sherry Wilson of Carolina Healthcare System NorthEast, who came in second place; Barb Meidl of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, who came in third place; and Donna Groce of Trinity Oaks, fourth place.

Shawn Edman and Jessica Ijames — both of Novant Health Rowan Medical Center — tied for fifth place.

All volunteers won prizes donated by chamber member firms.

The top team was the Novant Health Rowan Medical Center, which was led by team captain Shawn Edman.

The date for the 2018 directory and new member perks has been extended until Sept. 29.

Anyone who was not able to join during the campaign and is still interested in membership should contact the Rowan Chamber of Commerce at 704-633-4221, info@rowanchamber.org or www.rowanchamber.com.
