Chamber Services

Networking Opportunities with the Habersham Chamber

Some of the most valuable benefits of being a Chamber member are the opportunities to meet other business people, learn about their businesses, let them learn about your business, and develop business relationships that are mutually beneficial. The Habersham Chamber is proud to offer the following networking events:

Business after Hours

Ten Business-after-Hours events are scheduled each year, January through October. These events are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. Attendance averages about 100 per event. Chamber members host these in their businesses to highlight and promote their companies.

New members get the opportunity to introduce themselves and their business at a Business after Hours. There is no charge to attend these events. Although these events are for Chamber members, visitors who are thinking about joining the Chamber are welcome.

Business Before Hours

Business before Hours was started to serve those members whose schedule did not fit with Business after Hours. Business before Hours is hosted in a Chamber member’s business from 8-9 a.m. This generally serves a different group from the Business after Hours;

however, Chamber members are encouraged to attend both events if possible. There is no fee to attend a Business before Hours, and visitors who are thinking about joining the Chamber are welcome.

Networking Groups

Two types of networking groups are available for 'meeting & greeting' and promotion of business – a noon/lunch LEADS group and a Power Networking Lunch. There is no charge to attend, but participants pay for food ordered when the group meets at a restaurant.

• Lunch LEADS Networking Group: 11:30 a.m. First and third Mondays of each month Location – Stew 'N Que, Baldwin

• Non-Profit Networking Group: Bi-monthly meeting from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Location – The Torch Worship Center, Demorest

• Northeast Georgia Safety Association: Every second Wednesday from 12-1:30 p.m. Location – North Georgia Technical College - Dining Hall Annex, Clarkesville

Seminars and Workshops

Seminars and workshops – such as Lunch & Learns, Existing Industry meetings, and specific training – afford opportunities throughout the year for networking. Always be sure

to have business cards when attending any of these events and do not be shy about introducing yourself and your business.
