GETTING INVOLVED IS WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT!
Much of CBDA's success is due to the hardworking members who volunteer their time and service on a CBDA committee. This structure allows CBDA take the lead on a number of issues impacting growth within the Pembroke SGA; effectively communicate ideas, concerns and strategies for development with city officials; plan and execute events to enhance member networking opportunities; and provide advice, guidance and planning for the organization's internal operations.
This committee establishes value proposition for members, sets the dues structure, and determines marketing and website enhancements for potential members. Its mission is to strengthen and encourage membership growth and involvement in the Pembroke Strategic Growth Area and the Central Business District.
This committee is involved in actively assessing the membership to determine events of interest and setting the calendar for each year. This committee works with the Finance Committee to establish financial criteria necessary to carry out the mission of the CBDA. Emphasis is placed on events that provide networking opportunities for members to sell their brand and market their products, hosting informative meetings with special guest speakers, attracting prominent business, political and community leaders that also provide exceptional networking opportunities for members, and community fundraising.
A subcommittee of the Events Committee, the Golf Tournament Committee plans and executes the CBDA Annual Golf Tournament. In 2011, the committee completely revamped the Golf Tournament, holding it at a new venue and organizing sponsored activities at each hole, creating an interactive and enjoyable experience for the golfers that enhanced networking opportunities. Tournament is a sell out each year.
