PROMOTION AND RESOURCES
Annual Printed Business Directory — All CCBF members receive a free copy of the annual Business Directory. Members are listed three ways: according to business/industry categories, alphabetically by corporate name, and by geographic region. The directory provides all of the necessary contact information for the members and has proven to be an invaluable tool for members who want to connect with each other.
Online Business Directory (www.ccbf.org) — While the printed directory is updated annually, the online Business Directory is changed as soon as new businesses join the organization. The online directory only lists paid members. Those who advertise in the printed directory receive a free ad in the online directory. Business listings can be changed throughout the year without charge to reflect changes in personnel, products or services.
JOBS: Help Wanted/Employment Wanted — Several CCBF members cite this free service as a huge cost-saving benefit for their organization as they look for Christian employees, managers or CEOs. This service alone recovers their cost of membership. Members are able to post Help Wanted ads on the CCBF website without charge. Members have been highly successful in finding qualified Christian employees to fill their needs. Likewise, CCBF also helps unemployed men and women by posting their availability online. While their resumes remain at the National Office, employees can inquire about the resume and they can also connect directly with the applicant. Those seeking employment do not need to be a CCBF member.
Leadership Development Resources — Every month, the National Office mails out leadership development study materials to chapter members in advance of their monthly meetings. This five year ‘curriculum’ is based on the NIV Leadership Study Bible.
NETWORKS newsletter — The executive director sends out a monthly newsletter, NETWORKS, to an e-group of members, friends and adherents, providing the latest in Federation news.
