Now that you’ve completed the steps and launched the Federation Partnership Program for your small businesses, you’ll want to keep your membership data updated and spread the word.
Maintaining Member Data
Please be sure to update your member data at least once a year. However, we recommend updating once a month to keep your roster up to date and ensure only your current members are receiving Federation Partnership benefits.
Please visit www.uschamberfederation.com to get started.
Why maintain your membership data?
Remember, through the Federation Partnership Program, your members receive complimentary access to many U.S. Chamber services and benefits. As your organization gains more members, make sure to add them so they can take advantage of these resources as well. We hope offering access to our resources will help serve as a retention tool for you. If your members decide not to renew, they will continue to be able to access U.S. Chamber resources until you remove them from your membership.
Promote the Program to Your Members
This program only works if your members know about the tools and resources available to them through their U.S. Chamber federation membership. Provide value and retain your members by promoting the federation partnership along with your own membership benefits. We’ve put together a full kit of marketing collateral and customizable pieces to help you in the marketing kit below.
