2015 PEP Talks Survey
In 2013, the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce launched our PEP Talks series, Promote Enterprising Performance. Serving as an educational outreach opportunity for members and non-members, our goal is to help strengthen and grow community businesses and organizations while helping to enhance professional networks for attendees.
As a follow up to our successful spring series, please complete our 2015 PEP Talks survey to help determine the topics and format of our fall series. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Although the survey may be completed anonymously, submitted contact information will be entered for a drawing of one $20 gift certificate to a member business of the winner’s choice. You do not have to be a Chamber member to be eligible to win. Survey responses will be collected until 11:59 PM Tuesday, July 28.
