Chamber Expands Membership Opportunities
Arts and cultural nonprofits and those focusing on animal causes can now join the Nonprofit Chamber. Until now, only health and human services nonprofits qualified for membership, but the board felt that other nonprofits could benefit from the discussions, conferences and information presented at Chamber meetings. “We all encounter the same types of issues regarding human resource management, finances, fund-raising, advocacy, and other internal matters,” explained Marlene Passell, Chamber manager. Because the organization was focused on its mission and growing membership, it initially kept membership within the health and human services arena. “But we receive requests regularly from other organizations and we are now prepared for that growth,” Ms. Passell added.
Additionally, start-up nonprofits with budgets of $100,000 or less can request scholarships to cover the first year’s $200 membership cost. Other categories of membership have also been added to allow funding organizations and those seeking to sponsor events or meetings to become involved with the Chamber.
