Membership and Welcoming
  • Chair Person: Tracy Brookshier
  • Members: Ruth Heffner, Sarrah Gigous, Ann Tran

“The Membership and Welcoming Committee is focused on gaining new members, keeping current members excited to be here, and to make sure we are giving our warmest “WELCOME” to new businesses and individuals who make the move to Bowling Green. We develop our Membership Guide Brochures, our Members Only Sponsorship Opportunities Guide, and are working on more fun materials to promote our Chamber Members and recruit more!

We typically meet after the general Chamber meeting which is held the second Wednesday of each month, 12:00 noon at the Bowling Green Community Center (201 West Locust Street, Bowling Green, MO 63334). Our ultimate goal is to ensure that our members feel like they are getting what they pay for with their membership dues AND THEN SOME. It is exciting to get creative and come up with new, fun ways to keep our members and future members excited to, well….. BE MEMBERS!” – Tracy Brookshier
