    Entrepreneurial Moment:

    Acknowledge when you get a lead and follow up with your fellow members so they can follow up and know you are taking care of their customers.

    Action Points:

    • Please ensure that you have downloaded your new Promoter App
    • Leads to other Leadshare Groups do count in the stats but they cannot be entered in through the app, so email those to Lisa or Dr. Eric to get them in from the back end.
    • Add your events through the app and it will be loaded up to the website automatically.
    • The best way to take advantage of the chamber is to be involved.
