VOLUME 26 ISSUE 8

Membership: An Outstanding Investment The Greater Hall Chamber's Annual Membership Campaign officially kicked off on February 1. Dozens of volunteers are gearing up to recruit new Chamber members and are offering a host of incentives. Chamber Vice Chairs of Membership Brian Rochester Phil Bonelli, Regions Bank, Rochester & Associates and Brett Fowler, Turner, Chairman, Greater Hall Wood & Smith Insurance, Chamber of Commerce are leading the drive. The Membership Campaign runs through March 31, and volunteers are seeking to develop new business relationships and recruit 100 new members. Chamber members enjoy many benefits including networking and leads development, advertising opportunities, committee participation, small business development programs, resourceful workshops, major expos and events and more. In addition, a Special Incentives Package is available when you join the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce NOW!

Major Impact on Small Businesses Small businesses represent the largest segment of most local chamber membership rolls, and the study indicates that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small businesses. (93% of the Greater Hall Chamber's members are small businesses.) According to the report, if respondents know that a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business (in Southern U.S.) enjoys a 45% increase in its consumer favorability rating, a 43% increase in consumer awareness, an 83% increase in its local reputation, and an 82% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future.

A national survey of 2,000 adults reveals that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy because two-thirds of consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community. The study, conducted by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm, and commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives, found consumer perceptions of chamber members to be positive in many ways:

Visibility: Your Chamber increases your visibility within the community.

• When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from that company. • If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber, consumers are 10% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition.

These are some hefty statistics showing that joining the Greater Hall Chamber can be the best investment you've ever made! More Benefits Networking: People do business with people they know. Your chamber creates networking opportunities with other business professionals and fosters relationships.

Supporting Economic Growth: The Chamber directly impacts local business environments and the local economy, creating a win-win for everyone. Access to Resources: The Greater Hall Chamber connects you with resources that you need to thrive through committees, monthly programs and informative workshops. Community Involvement: Supporting your local community increases quality of life for everyone. Many thanks to our members and volunteers! We appreciate each organization's contribution to our success. If you're not a member, I urge you to join during the Membership Drive that runs through March 31.

Joining the Chamber may be the BEST INVESTMENT you'll ever make! SIGN UP NOW during the membership campaign for extra benefits. Call 770-532-6206 or join online at GHCC.com/membership. 2

Health Plan for Small Business The Georgia Chamber SMART Plan is a health care solution that gives small businesses an easier, more affordable way to offer health care to employees, with a lot less worry. The Greater Hall Chamber, in partnership with the Georgia Chamber, has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) to offer Chamber members (with 2-50 employees) an opportunity to participate in a larger, self-funded pool. This way, small businesses can join together to share in the overall claims risk and have financial protection backed by Anthem. In addition, this great health plan alternative offers: • Competitive rates • Predictable, fixed monthly payments • Flexibility in choice of benefit plans • Broad networks through Anthem’s Open Access POS & Essential Rx Greater Hall Chamber members can learn more about the SMART Plan through your insurance agent or contact Chamber Vice Chair of Membership, Brett Fowler at Turner, Wood and Smith Insurance, 770-536-0161 ext. 231.

membership development Jaemor Celebrates 40 Years

The Echols family has farmed in Hall and surrounding counties for over 100 years (L-R) the late Valvoreth Echols, Jimmy, Jarl, Judah and Drew Echols. Jaemor Farm Market turned forty years old last month. Beginning as a roadside fruit stand in the 1960s, the thriving agribusiness has seen 12 expansions over the years. The farm itself has doubled in size within the last ten years and is now up to some 500 acres. Since 1912, the Echols family has grown peaches in the tri-county area of Hall, Banks and Habersham counties, and the farm was recognized as a Centennial Farm in 2012. Jimmy and Valvoreth Echols owned Jaemor Farm Market from 1981 until 2015 when they sold the market to their sons Jarl and Judah Echols and grandson, Drew. Although the farm initially produced only peaches, chickens and cattle – it now produces over 15 crops including peaches, strawberries, blackberries, apples, tomatoes, squash and pumpkins. While Jimmy has “retired” as owner, you'll still find him working on the farm or stocking peaches – making four generations working on the farm and in the market! jaemorfarms.com

creation and investment. Similarly, Forbes Magazine has rated Gainesville-Hall County as one of the “Best Small Places for Business & Careers” for the last six years. • Georgia has earned the #1 ranking for its business environment for an unprecedented eighth year in a row, and Gainesville-Hall County has been the top job producing Metropolitan Area in the state. • Since 2015, the Chamber’s economic development program has assisted 118 new and expanding businesses for 5,750 jobs and $1.5 billion in new capital investment. Our success in economic development has been a product of community leadership working together on infrastructure planning and investment to support business growth. In 2021, infrastructure implementation, such as in the new, +1,000 acre Gainesville 85 Business Park, will be important to developing a future place to grow for expanding existing industries and new businesses.

Youth Leadership Hall Youth Leadership Hall class members typically travel to the State Capitol for the Annual State Government program. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the program was delivered in a "hybrid" format this year. In January, Senator Butch Miller welcomed the students via video and gave them an overview of the Georgia Capitol and a brief history lesson on the building. He informed the students of the issues for the upcoming legislation session and discussed the State Budget. Students then had the opportunity to virtually meet our local delegation and watch a recording of Eggs & Issues from the December meeting. Senator Miller was elected in 2010 to represent the 49th Senate District (covering the majority of Hall County), and in January 2018, he was elected Senate President Pro Tempore. He has graciously hosted Youth Leadership Hall County and Leadership Hall participants for many years. We appreciate you, Senator Miller, and your service representing the citizens of Gainesville-Hall County. February 2021 | GreaterHallChamber.com

The Hall-Dawson CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program is a nonprofit organization providing quality advocacy for abused and neglected children in our community. CASA trains and empowers community volunteers in Hall and Dawson counties to help change a child’s story. CASA Volunteers ensure children have someone who will amplify their voice in the courtroom and make sure that their best interests are being served. CASA Volunteers are appointed to a child or sibling group by a Juvenile Court Judge to complete an independent assessment of the child’s and family’s needs, report their findings and make recommendations to the court. Their sole responsibility is to be an independent voice for the child and to advocate to ensure every child receives the services they need to recover from the abuse and neglect they have experienced. Children with a dedicated volunteer by their side have someone who will speak up for their best interests in the courtroom and community, and help them find the road home, wherever it lies. Last year, Hall-Dawson CASA served more than 350 children who are experiencing foster care. Currently, there are more than 100 children who do not have the benefit of CASA advocacy, and volunteers are needed. What can you and your organization do to Change a Child’s Story? • Create a culture of generosity by encouraging employee volunteerism • Advocate for abused and neglected children in our community • Support children in the foster care system by being their voice in and out of court • ACT NOW!
