In today’s world, when you have LinkedIn and various webinars easily accessible with a good Internet connection, it may seem more than a little unnecessary to join a networking organization that you attend in person.
As the MarCom Membership Chair, I’d like to ask you to set aside that line of thought and consider instead the benefits of meeting with people, fact-to-face, and just enjoying the company and camaraderie of belonging to a group of like-minded individuals who, like you, want to grow in their careers and industry know-how. If that’s not enough to convince you to join MarCom, we also serve up a great breakfast.
Being a member of MarCom and attending our monthly breakfast series is more than a chance to network with other marketing professionals, it’s an opportunity to learn about different facets of the marketing industry. We’ve had speakers ranging from the ever successful Hoopfest, to well-known author, Stefan Mumaw, to helpful panels of area professionals who are willing to answer your burning questions.
Membership also has its perks, you’ll get discounted pricing on our monthly meetings and Spark Awards gala - you'll even get a discount on monthly breakfast sponsorships!
Clearly, the benefits of becoming a MarCom member are boundless, so make sure you plan to enroll or renew your membership for the 2019-2020 program year! If you have any questions about membership, feel free to reach out to myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or any of our other outstanding board members.
