Twice the local president and yes a member. The state tourism association too. Pitch in and promote. Be part of the local community activities you work on behind the scenes. To plan, pull off and make even better than the one last year. Instead of just buying a ticket and attending the event be an integral part of it. Rotary, Elks, Masons are all great service avenues to improve your area, yourself!

I thought about it.. inquired...we have many chambers, and there were way too many agents as members doing their thing... so I passed.

I like to hang out in networking groups that have no other agents.

I did for awhile and was even an ambassador. It did provide an opportunity to start a grassroots network separate from the chamber. It lasted a couple of years and some of us have stayed connected. I did earn a few loans from the Chamber but in the grassroots group I did loans for several for their personal homes.

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® I did belong to the Chamber, but there was no ROI. I submitted a couple of proposals for some commercial listings, but it always seemed like the same brokerage always won the listings. The same thing happened with the local Association. Get several proposals so it looks like they are competing, but giving the listings to their favorite firm.
