Conquistadore Corner - June 2014

Jun 24th, 2014

What are you waiting for?

“Why do it today when you can wait till tomorrow?” That’s the easy way out.

Being a member of the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce is not only an honor, but it is also an asset that is not well used by its members.

The Chamber offers numerous ways to get the name of your business out and numerous op­portunities for networking, advertising and workshops – just to name a few – that will help build a solid bottom line. These opportunities are there for you, however, you need to take the first step and the first step is being a member. No need to wait until tomorrow, pick up the phone and call 524-1968 and tell them Rick recommended you.

Now, you have taken the first step and are a member of a great organization that’s very active in the community. The Chamber listens to your concerns and will take a stand on what’s right. You are now attending Business After Hours, ribbon cuttings, workshops and update luncheons, and realize that the Chamber offers so much that you need to be have a double.

It’s now time to get your employees in­volved and let them represent your profession and share in the growth of your business and
our community. Ask your employees if they would like to be a Conquistadore, or be involved in Leadership Las Cruces or Junior Leadership – the lists go on. Having an employee represent your business as a Conquistadore at ribbon cuttings, ground breaking, Las Cruces Day in Santa Fe, setting on commit­tees and numerous other Chamber events is a posi­tive way to get your name out in the community. Let your employees help sell your business in a positive environment filled with profes­sionals seeking opportunities to be involved in events that bring goodwill.

You have been attending events, and now you and your co-works are seeing your pictures in the Bottom Line, your name in articles in newsprint and the Chamber recog­nizing you when possible. Who knows, you could be selected as Business of the Month – what an honor that would be.

Why wait another day? Pick up the phone and call. It will be one of the best decisions you make today.
