Roundtables

 

 

The Chamber’s Roundtables were designed to provide our members with an opportunity to share issues that you face as you operate your business, seek support from a like minded group, and to learn about programs/benefits/opportunities to assist your business and help you grow. 

Each of these groups are confidential, carefully vetted with applications, and guided by an industry expert.

 

Franchise Roundtable

Members will discuss topics that are common to franchise systems.  From time to time, we may invite guest speakers who can bring additional knowledge and ideas to the group. Possible Topics include managing the franchiser / franchise relationship; working on my business, not in my business; optimizing the benefits of royalties; legal issues relative to the franchise industry; transitioning my franchise business (selling; pass to family, etc.); cross marketing with other brands; and much more!  

Members of the group must be a member of The Chamber of St. Matthews in good standing. Prospective members can attend the group twice before joining the chamber. Members would not be expected to exchange trade secrets. Or sharing anything that violates your franchise agreement. There will be no competing brands.  

 

Non-Profit Roundtable

The Non-Profit Roundtable program gives Chamber member nonā€profit organizations a confidential forum for communication, insight and support. Nonprofits can meet and share thoughts and ideas and learn what has worked for others in the areas of fundraising, board development, event planning, employee benefits, marketing and other areas of interest.

The group is for Chamber of St. Matthews members in good standing and visitors may attend two times before they are asked to join the group (and the chamber, if they are not a member).
