Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce is giving away free go a seminar in Dallas???

30 September 2010 at 1:39:38 PM

This morning around 8am, Don of the Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce sent out a HIGH IMPORTANCE email telling the members that they have secured 20 free tickets to the conference in Fort Worth (it is really in Dallas but the email says Fort Worth, see the email below) on October 19th.

Is not the function of the Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce to bring business into Glen Rose instead of telling people here to go elsewhere? 

Why is the Glen Rose Chamber telling people to leave Glen Rose and go to Dallas for a seminar?

Did the Glen Rose Chamber spend any of the money we pay for membership on any of this?

DATE:  September 29, 2010

TO:  Dallas, TX Get Motivated Seminar Participant

Your tickets for the October 19 Get Motivated Seminar at the American Airlines Center were mailed to you today.  They usually take a few days to arrive so please be looking for them to arrive soon.  I have attached a map and directions to the American Airlines Center that you can send to the rest of your group.  The handout/flyer is also attached.

As soon as you receive the ticket package please count the tickets and send a reply e-mail or phone with the following information:

  1. How many tickets did you receive?
  2. How many of the tickets do you think will be used?

We take extra steps to assure accuracy on addresses and ticket counts and we want to make sure you are taken care of.   

 If you find that you have some unused tickets please feel free to give them others that would like to attend the associates, civic club members, friends, relatives, etc. The seminar is very entertaining as well as informative so there is something for everyone. It is a great lineup of speakers and will give you the kind of information you need in this economy. 

 Please continue to promote the seminar in as many ways and as many times as you can.  If you need help let us know.  There is plenty of time to get the word out. 

 Some people have asked about the seminar workbooks.  Information about the workbooks is below.

 Let me know if you have any questions regarding this information.

P.S.  There are seminar workbooks available that some people like to have at the seminar.  BKW has no control over the workbooks, but if you want to purchase them for $4.95 each call the toll free 800 phone number on the flyer I e-mailed to you (1-800-217-1339).  Tell the operator that you already have your seminar tickets through BKW Marketing Communications and you want to purchase some workbooks.  They will take your order and fax or e-mail you a voucher that is redeemed for the workbook(s) at the seminar.  The workbooks are $21 at the seminar so it is a good idea to pre-buy them if you want them.  Having a workbook is not necessary to enjoy the seminar but they follow each speaker's outline, are a great place to take notes and contain information from speakers that have appeared at other Get Motivated Seminars around the country.

Just to address the question of if Glen Rose is paying for these tickets. 

My company also received a packet on this seminar, and the tickets are free. 

So, Glen Rose should not be paying anything for them.

The question was whether the Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce is spending money on it...and that answer is YES!

After an email conversation with the Glen Rose Chamber of Commerce, they admitted spending $10 on tickets, workbooks, etc. so the place that touts "inspiring community growth and prosperity" is spending money and sending email communications encouraging people to go to Dallas on a specific date.

Why even promote something that would draw people out of town when your only function, that folks are PAYING for, is to promote local?

Sure makes me want to second guess the 4-B issue. Darrell Best wants to funnell money from the 4-B to the Chamber of Commerce so if that were to happen then they would potentially be taking local taxes and spending it to send folks to Dallas, which goes against the concept of Economic Development. If they aren't being responsible now what would make them responsible if the City of Glen Rose and 4-B approved it?
