Business after Hours
Ten Business-after-Hours events are scheduled each year, January through October. These events are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m., and 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. 2019 BAH Calendar
Business Before Hours
In 2012, a 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 8:00 – 9:00 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.
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.
Seminars and Workshops
Seminars and workshops--such as Business Resource Center 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.
