October 19: Best Day of the Year
You may think October 4 is the best day of the month - National Taco Day and National Vodka Day. To paraphrase Chandler Bing, "Could there be a better combination?!" I think not. Then I discovered October 19 - National Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce Day and National New Friends Day. Ha - beat that Chandler Bing!!
I feel it is more than coincidental that Chamber Day and Friend Day coexist on the same date. If you have ever attended a OPRF Women in Business monthly meeting, you'll see what I mean. The gatherings never run on time. We laugh, we cry, we hug it out. We talk too much and 45 minute Midwestern good-byes are practically obligatory. At a recent Spotlight Soiree awards party, Chamber members were still socializing an hour after the event formally ended, the tables were cleared and music cut off. Again, pretty typical for a Chamber event - no one wants to leave.
What can we say? We genuinely enjoy each other's company. New members are immediately engulfed with coffee dates and introductions to meet more members to network and socialize. We want you to be a part of our inner circle. If you are looking for a new tribe, a new support system, an entire network of vetted referrals, you should join the Chamber.
Going back to the incredible month of October...you should join the OPRF Chamber right now. October is Chamber Membership Month and if you join the Chamber before October 31, you will receive three months free. That's fifteen months for the price of twelve! Could there be a better reason to join?!
