Chamber Connections

Join us every Thursday from 9:30- 10:15 a.m. for Chamber Connections. These events provide members with opportunities to get to know new people and expand their prospect base. Chamber Connections are a fun way to meet potential customers, clients, and vendors.  They are also open to the community. Find the Chamber Connections schedule here.

Our members are encouraged to host a Chamber Connection, to get members in your door, and the platform to share about your business or organization. It gives everyone a chance to meet you and your staff and become more familiar with your products, services and mission. Chamber Connections open the door for future business or volunteers, while giving you the opportunity to network with other business contacts and build business relationships.
