Weekly Coffees Boost Connections
“Beginning June 4, Weekly Coffees Planned” This was the headline in the June 4, 2003, newspaper and referred to the weekly coffees first organized by the “Membership Services, Hospitality and Legislative Committee” of the Chamber. Back in 2003 the coffees were held on Wednesday mornings and records indicate that Vanguard was the first business to host a Chamber Coffee, now known as Chamber Connections.
Something I got a chuckle out of was how they were referred to in a 2003 document “The 9:30 a.m. coffee and donut gathering would be held at the host business.” Although we still share an occasional donut, the weekly gatherings are focused on making business connections. They are the perfect way to learn about local business products and services, or non-profit organizations and their outreach. Chamber Connections have their own vibe, a positive environment to build business relationships. Check out our Facebook page for a stroll through years of Chamber Connection photo albums.
