Under no circumstances should you discount dues.
If you do, you are making a statement that you’re not worth the regular price of admission.
In tough times, members need you more than ever. They should fully support the organization. A weak chamber translates to a weaker community.
If you’re delivering value, members will pay the dues point.
Also, once you discount, you can never go back. Members will always want to negotiate their dues.
You don’t negotiate your principles do you? Same deal with membership. Don’t negotiate your dues points.
You want full participation from your members - their intellect, their time and their financial support.
Don’t negotiate. You’re worth it!
