With a concentrated effort, the CORONA Chamber engaged with a group of volunteers to spread the word and knowledge of the many benefits for being part of the near 900 member organization. Headed by Kathleen Ray (Ur Social Agenda), Jon Haratyk (Living Better 101) and John Weyhgandt (Western States Financial) – this trifecta organized and assembled a superb team of volunteers of business owners, sales associates and officials that worked on our behalf. With a theme of The Force Be With You, Chad Willardson (Pacific Capital) played the part well dressed as Darth Vader, as the drive began with its kick off ceremony. Teams were assembled and goals were set. Team Names and members were: Team “Emperors of Commerce”: Linda Denmark, Joni Billings, Eileen Blaga, Dean Seif and Linda Pearson; Team “Jedi Masters”: Raphael Aguirie, Edward Baker, Ador Mansat, Bel Mansat, Bo Lowe and Evangeline Knowles; Team “Troopers”: Jerry Wilson, Chad Willardson, Mike Quraishi, Donette Wheat, James Sousa, Bill Masurek and Sol Shapiro; Team “Vaders”: Don Garling, Amber Moore, Shannon Seif, Sandi Klein, Kim Lewis, Shawn Kelly, Todd Rubenack; Team “Coronan Alliance” Jenna Redlin, Sakina Jones, Don Williamson, John Weyhgandt, Danette McCarns, Jon Haratyk, Jordan Windeknecht and Sheila Romanski. In two days a remarkable number of new members were brought into our Chamber family. “We are grateful to those Chamber members who assisted, and are excited to welcome new members to our Chamber,” stated Rawlings. Over 35 firms became affiliated with the CORONA Chamber with more connecting with the Chamber after the drive concluded. “The CORONA Chamber is more focused on assisting businesses, now more than ever,” Don Garling (Lifetime Vinyl Fence) Chairman of the Chamber cited, “we now offer numerous seminars for free with our partnership with the City of Corona.” Businesses can find options for joining, selecting from one-time payment to monthly installments – either are wise business investments. Overall Membership Drive Winner Linda Denmark (pictured with Heather Rawlings of the Corona Chamber) of the Emperors of Commerce is our overall Winner for the 2017 Membership Drive.
