A new informational membership luncheon provided in July which is halfway through the calendar year of the Cushing Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the luncheon is to provide the chamber members with a run-down of the first half year, to inform them about what they can expect during the second half of the year and to give them the synopsis of the mid-year survey. The survey is emailed to each member the latter part of June to those who have provided the chamber office with an email address. We ask each member to complete the confidential survey. The information gives the board of directors and staff the members’ unbiased view of the program of work as well as their perception of the Cushing Chamber of Commerce. This is used not only for the last half of the existing year but the information is used for planning the next year’s Program of Work.
