                   Member-to-Member Advantage Program
Dear Chamber Member:
     Your Board of Directors is continually working to add value to your membership in the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce. The
Zebulon Chamber of Commerce has implemented the Member-to-Member Advantage Program. The purpose of this program is to
encourage our members to buy and use the services of other members. It provides another form of advertisement for your busi-
ness and is intended to help you continue to grow your business in the local community.
     We are inviting your business to be a contributor to this program by providing an incentive or discount to other chamber
members and their employees. An example of this would be 10% off a specific service or item. The Chamber will provide a yearly
updated list of participating businesses describing the services offered. This program is strictly voluntary. If you believe this would
work for your business and add to your bottom line, please complete the information below and fax it to 919-269-6350. You may
also mail it to the Chamber at P.O. Box 546, Zebulon, NC 27597.
     The Member-to-Member Advantage Program discounts are available to all Zebulon Chamber members. You do not have to
be a participating contributor to receive this discount.
