The Chamber conducts an annual Total Resource Campaign to generate new members and budget reduction items. It’s always an exciting and FUN time of year for the Chamber and over 100 business volunteers. The chair for the campaign is the next year's Chamber Chair of the Board - this is always a good way for them to familiarize themselves and interact with our volunteers!
Team Captains recruit 10 volunteers for their teams for a total of 100 volunteers.
Volunteers are asked to bring in at least one new member to the Chamber. Great prizes are awarded to the top individual and team producers as well as random prizes for the hard working volunteers - last year's winner won a trip valued at $2500!
The 2017 Campaign will run from August 10 through September 19 chaired by Chamber Chair-elect Leon Owens of Swift & Staley. 2017 Team Captains are: Terrance Adams, Lourdes; Andy Carloss, Midtown Market; Brandon Clifton, US Bank; Whitney Denson, McMurry & Livingston; Brandon Hall, Wastren; Gilda Martin, People Plus; Lee Ann Morse, Baptist Health; Kevin O'Neill, WKCTC; Bradley Shoulta, Payment Plus; Jessica Wallace, Paducah Bank.
The 2016 top volunteer producer for the second consecutive year was Janice Cleary with Paducah Bank. Second place producer award went to Jessica Newman with Advantage Insurance; third place was Jessica Wallace with Paducah Bank; fourth place was Eri Gjergji with Computer Services; and fifth place was Megan Thomason with Northwestern Mutual.
The Paducah Bank team received the "traveling trophy" award for Overall Team Winner with Cleary serving as Team Captain, also for the second consecutive year. Cleary's team recruited 27 new members plus other renewals from the 2015 campaign and a variety of new sponsorships. The team captained by Darlene Mazzine with Mazzone Communications received second place and the third place team was captained by Mike Muscarella with Baptist Health Paducah.
