(Elizabeth City, NC, March 23, 2016) – Elizabeth City’s Committee of 100 (C100) membership drive is underway, sporting a new brochure, easy-to-use online registration form, a revamped marketing effort and – for the first time ever – corporate membership categories. Now, multiple employees of a business can join and enjoy the benefits of a corporate membership at one affordable rate.
“The C100 has long relied on the support of individual business leaders from within our community to help us in our goal to foster economic growth,” said Russ Hull, chairman of the C100. “But as they retired or left their jobs, we didn’t have ongoing representation from the company they worked for. The new corporate membership opportunity makes it easy and affordable for multiple employees of a business to be a part of the C100.”
A private, non-profit organization that dates to 1981, the C100 works with Elizabeth City and Pasquotank County government leaders to enhance and help fund economic growth that requires private sector agility. Over the years, the committee has cultivated sustainable projects that have had a long-term economic value, including the development of Elizabeth City’s Mariners’ Wharf, the Downtown Waterfront Market, a blueprint for a downtown marina study and the Jump-Start Downtown Business Plan Competition. The C100 has advanced the area’s business interests through marketing, communications and networking support and it hosts quarterly luncheons featuring presentations by experts on ground-breaking developments that affect economic growth in the region.
Annual membership fees are $100 for an individual member, $250 for corporate members of up to three named members, and $500 for corporate members of up to six named members. Each named corporate member can attend the C!00 quarterly luncheons at member prices and have their business name, individual names, logo, website link and a brief description of their company featured on the C100 web pages.
“Being a part of the C100 is a great way to stay informed, get involved and help attract new businesses to our area,” said Hull. “It’s important for businesses to support the C100, because the C100 supports businesses.”
