You may have sales-oriented staff who
would be interested in 1) being the Chamber's
guest for breakfast on Thursday,
March 6th and 2) volunteering for a shift
during the March 18-20 Chamber Membership
The drive will be led and conducted by
the Chamber, under the same format we
have been using each year since
2005. We do not hire outside firms or facilitators.
Chamber members Jennifer Grimaldi (hibu) and
Holly Hoag (Adecco Employment Services) are co-chairs.
A typical membership drive usually nets 30+ new members!
The Chamber will host the breakfast at the Wingate
Hotel at 8am on Thursday, March 6, and if you have employees
who are interested in attending we would certainly welcome
them as our guests. The meeting will last one hour. We
will provide details, expectations, and will explain the prize offerings
that participants will be eligible to win.
The drive will be held at the Chamber office: Tuesday, March
18 to Thursday, March 20th. During the 3-day campaign, we
ask that your representative(s) participate in one shift for a 1.5
hour commitment, either of the three days. The 1st shift is
from 10:30am to 12noon, the 2nd shift is from 1 to 2:30pm,
and the 3rd is from 2:30 to 4pm.
If you have one or more employees who you think would be
interested in participating and increasing the Chamber's visibility
and effectiveness, we would sincerely appreciate your support
and their involvement. We offer cash prizes and other

Did you hear what they’re saying about Rome?
Country Home Magazine Study Ranks Most Eco-Friendly Cities and Towns and Utica-Rome ranks in the top 25. For details, see complete study.
According to Bert Sperling’s “Cities Ranked & Rated: Your Guide to the Best Places to Live in the U.S. and Canada,” the Utica-Rome region is one of the least-stressed mid-sized metropolitan statistical areas in America. Only two other places were ranked less stressful places to live.
The March 2004 edition of Inc. magazine ranks the Utica-Rome area one of the “Top 25 Small Cities for Doing Business in America” based on affordability, and the current and historical job growth as the most objective indicator of a region’s economic vitality for entrepreneurs.
Also, Rome has received the consecutive honor of being named Tree City USA.
In 2005, Rome was voted as the 19th Most Secure City by Farmers Insurance Group, and the 7th Best Golf City in America by Golf Digest.
In 2002, Rome was included in the Mohawk Valley region's designation as an All America City Finalist, and was also named a New York State Quality Community.
