Join the Chamber’s ONE AND DONE Membership Drive

COCHi headshotMeet Our Campaign Mascot

The Chamber has launched its ONE AND DONE campaign to double our membership from 1,000 to 2,000 member organizations. The campaign challenges each of our 1,000 member organizations and their employees to bring in one new member, with a wide variety of awards as incentives to participate.

ONE AND DONE is open to all Chamber of Commerce Hawaii member organizations and their employees, with prizes awarded depending upon the level of new membership dues that a member brings in. Award levels start at $500 in membership dues on up to $20,000, with award values increasing as membership dues level goes up.

Participants who sell, at a minimum, $500 in membership dues will also be eligible for our Grand Prize drawing. Qualifying participants will receive one ticket for every $500 in memberships sold to be placed into the drawing for our Grand Prize (e.g., if a member sells $1,000 in memberships, they will receive 2 tickets for the drawing). Drawing will be held at the Chamber’s annual luncheon on July 17, 2014. Qualifying participants need not be present to win.

The ONE AND DONE campaign runs from February 26-June 30, 2014. All new members must be recruited and reported to the Chamber via the Chamber’s Membership Recruitment Form within this time period in order to be eligible for awards. One award per participant, based on the total value of memberships sold (e.g., participants cannot divide up the number of memberships sold and receive awards at various levels.)

The grand prize award is a choice of:

Paris in Fall: Roundtrip airfare for 2 and 4-night stay at The Westin Paris – Vendome

History of Rome: Roundtrip airfare for 2 and 4-night stay at The Westin Excelsior Rome

Meet COCHi

COCHi is the campaign’s goat mascot. Why a goat? In 1949, the Chamber held a membership campaign where each board member was responsible for taking care of a live goat, dubbed “Gloomy Goat,” until he or she recruited a new member. Once a member was recruited, the board member passed Gloomy on to the next board member for caretaking until he or she recruited a member.

Honoring that history, the Chamber embarked on a worldwide (Internet) search for a life-sized replica of Gloomy and found COCHi in Texas. This time around, each of the Chamber’s board members has to house COCHi in his/her office until each is able to recruit a new member, after which COCHi is delivered to the next board member, until all board members have recruited, at least, one new member. COCHi is an abbreviated version of the Chamber name, pronounced “ko-chi.”

COCHi will be making appearances throughout the ONE AND DONE campaign. Where is COCHi now? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out!
