Kyle Office Solutions Hosts October Breakfast & Biz

Chamber Perks launches during popular networking event

Kyle Office Solutions hosted the Chamber's fall quarterly morning networking event, Breakfast & Biz, October 24 at their location in downtown Tuscaloosa.

The event was a special Breakfast & Biz during which the Chamber launched a brand new portfolio of benefits, Chamber Perks. The first benefit to roll out, Office Perks, is a result of a partnership with Kyle Office Solutions, and offers members up to 65 percent on office supplies they're already purchasing. The program allows members to take advantage of Kyle's national contract pricing combined with excellent local service. 

Available to Chamber members at no additional cost, Chamber Perks saves members significant money on business expenses. “We are constantly working to bring our members all the tools they need to conduct members effectively, and surveyed our members to find out the benefits most needed,” says Jim Page, President and CEO of the Chamber. “After identifying the programs our members would find most beneficial, we've developed programs to provide substantial value.”

A random drawing was held from all members who participated in the member benefits survey, and Bill Lunsford of Lunsford Construction was the winner of the $250 gift card.

Two other perks also launched during the event - Shipping Perks and Travel Perks.

Shipping Perks allows new and existing FedEx business account holders to save up to 63 percent off select shipping services – all with no minimum shipping requirements. Eligible services include Express U.S., Ground and Express international services.

The Travel Perks program enables Chamber members to take advantage of once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities at substantial savings. The first trip will be a nine-day Tuscany trip in March 2018. Chamber members will tour Florence, San Gimignano, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and so much more, and $3,125 per person includes the cost of hotels, meals, tours, transportation, and airfare.

The event also kicked off the Shop Small / Shop Local campaign, and attendees took home materials to help them celebrate Shop Small Saturday, scheduled for November 25. Download ready-to-use materials for the day here.
