Which Chambers are eligible to be a Federation Partner?
Local Chambers who are in good standing with the Wyoming State Chamber of Commerce can opt into the Wyoming Business & Industry Federation and will be able to supply their members with a complimentary membership into the Federation.
What is the cost associated with being a Federation Partner?
There is no cost to be a Federation partner, provided the Local Chamber is an investor in the Wyoming State Chamber of Commerce.
How does my Chamber become a Federation Partner?
As a member in good standing with the Wyoming State Chamber of Commerce your Local Chamber can provide your invested business members with a complimentary Federation Partnership. Sign and complete the agreement, featuring partner information, and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why must I sign an agreement to be a Federation Partner?
The agreement allows for proper record keeping needed by the Wyoming Business & Industry Federation to accurately record which Local Chambers have chosen to participate along with a traceable count of Federation members.
Can my business members serve on the Wyoming Business & Industry Federation Policy Committee?
No. Only the leadership of the Wyoming State Chamber of Commerce and Local Chambers, including the Board of Directors & Key Staff, will be able to serve on this committee.
Will the Federation Partners’ Members be prospected by the Federation?
Federation member lists will not be used by Wyoming Business & Industry Federation staff as prospect lists. Investment opportunities in the Federation will only be shared by the request of the Federation Partner.
What is your opt-out policy?
Each email that is sent out from the Wyoming Business & Industry Federation has an unsubscribe/opt-out feature, which when clicked on, will remove the individual from future emails. Federation members may also opt-out of any and all contact lists at any time by contacting the Federation directly.
How will you manage the Federation information?
The Wyoming Business & Industry Federation has built two different communication options into this program from which local, county and regional chambers can choose:
Direct to Member (preferred): The Federation is responsible for sending communications to the Federation members.
Supply your logo in a high resolution JPG or PNG to co-brand materials with other Federation Partners
Email logo to email@example.com
Direct to Local Chamber: The local chamber will be responsible for forwarding Federation communications received to business members. The local chamber agrees that time-sensitive information and materials will be passed along to members in time for prescribed action to be taken.
Can I control which information the Federation Members from my chamber receive?
If you choose option two above, Direct to Local Chamber, you have the ability to review and make decisions on information before forwarding along to your business members.
How often will you be sending out information to the Federation members?
The Wyoming Business & Industry Federation is sensitive to the amount of information that will be sent to Federation members and understands this will be in addition to information they receive from their local chamber. As with any communication schedule, this is subject to change, but routine communication would consist of the following:
Weekly Legislative Update email during the legislative session.
Communication highlighting upcoming policy events and programs.
As needed: Legislative “Call to Action” announcements, Policy workshop invitation & Surveys/Polls
If I chose the Direct to Local Chamber communication option, what information do I need to provide?
The number of Federation members and their employee count at the time of joining the Federation, plus a yearly update so that the Federation can keep an accurate record.
