Chamber Members Show Their Creative Side for Third Member Appreciation Day

As a way of thanking members for their support this past year, the Detroit Regional Chamber gave away a handful of prizes throughout the third Member Appreciation Day on Dec. 7th. To enter, members had to take a picture of their Chamber plaque or graphic in a fun, creative way and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The Chamber received a few creative graphics from our members. One featured the Chamber’s appreciation day graphic on Santa’s sleigh while another had a cute bulldog holding up the graphic. The Chamber also received a few video entries, among them one showed the staff of Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit doing their own version of the Mannequin Challenge.

Prizes ranged from complimentary registrations to signature Chamber events to various gift cards and lunch with a Chamber executive at the Detroit Athletic Club. Five members were awarded prizes over the course of the day and three final prizes were announced the following morning.

Below is the full list of winning entries and their prizes.
