A Note from President/SEO Chris Russell:
October 12, 2021
Dear Chamber Members,
The Nixa Chamber of Commerce has launched our annual Total Resource Campaign (TRC) called The XGAMES—and our goal is for every chamber to be involved. The TRC is our way of connecting chamber members with sponsorship opportunities for 2022. And, based on past performance, The XGAMES volunteers will have secured commitments for the majority of Nixa Chamber 2022 sponsorship opportunities by the end of this TRC in late October.
The chamber staff has worked tirelessly for both chamber members and the community by providing a variety of new and exciting events, publications, programs and more.
Sucker Day was a huge success bringing in over 20,000 people to Nixa. Bringing back the Sky High Fireworks Show was also successful; the all-new Nixa Resource Directory was mailed and distributed to over 18,000 homes and businesses. The new City of Nixa maps are flying off the shelves and the all-new Experience Nixa app is quickly becoming an excellent resource for our community. We encourage you to download the Experience Nixa app in the Google Play or iTunes Store app to see your member listing. A TRC volunteer can help you upgrade your listing so your business can get the most from the app.
The Nixa Chamber continues to be very involved in economic development for our community by attending and participating in city and county meetings that include state officials representing our businesses and community. We are involved with the Nixa Downtown Revitalization efforts, Nixa Arts Council and so much more. So, when you support the Nixa Chamber, you are also supporting our community.
You may have already been contacted by a Nixa Chamber TRC volunteer asking you to sponsor an event or program. Hopefully, you and that volunteer discussed the benefits associated with each sponsorship. The difference in this TRC program is that we can show you precisely what benefits you will gain through the various sponsorships you select. You will be able to see that these sponsorships are not simply charitable donations to the chamber but rather profitable business (often, marketing and advertising) expenditures.
And, because the goal of the TRC is to fund all sponsorship opportunities for 2022, you can be assured we won’t return to you during the year to ask for additional funds regarding sponsorships. The exception to this is if a new opportunity arises that the chamber board and staff feel beneficial for our community.
Don’t delay. The TRC ends on October 28.
We have approximately 30 member volunteers making contacts with businesses throughout the area and discussing sponsorship opportunities. There are hundreds of ways your business can get involved and we have sponsorship opportunities for every budget.
Golf tournament ball drop tickets are $10 each
New teacher luncheon sponsorships start at $30 each
A Nixa Young Professionals trivia night team is $125
A chamber luncheon series annual pass is $165
The Experience Nixa mobile app splash screen is $625 per month
A half-page ad in the Nixa Chamber printed directory that includes a 4×2 map ad is $795
The Sucker Day parade sponsor is $1,250
The Sucker Day art zone sponsorship is $2,000
And the list goes on!
The sponsorships sold during the TRC will fund the Chamber programs and events in 2022. These funds enable the chamber and board of directors to continue to move the mission, vision, values, beliefs and perspectives, forward.
If a TRC volunteer hasn’t approached you yet, one likely will soon. If you want to be contacted immediately, please call or email our office and we will quickly forward your information to a volunteer. Time is of the essence, so to speak, as sponsorships sell out quickly.
As always, we thank you for your ongoing support of the Nixa Chamber.
