Member campaign gears up, incentives offered

Incentives to join include free advertising in publications, Web site listings and more.
"Our chamber continues to gain prominence in the Tampa Bay region, and with more members and member volunteers, there's no limits to what we can accomplish," said campaign co-chairman Peri Craven of Moss Feaster Funeral Homes. Sue Osborne of Tampa Bay Newspapers is co-chair.
Highlighting the campaign will be a two-day, four-session phone-a-thon at the chamber's offices on May 6-7, sponsored by Knology and Centratel Telephones.
