19 Dec Chamber Connections Coming in 2017
The Chamber Weekly Coffees have been a valuable networking event for not only the hosting Chamber member business, but as well as those that attending. We are going to be making some changes to the weekly gathering beginning with the first event scheduled on Thursday, January 5th. The first change will be the time – we will begin at 9:00 a.m. with introductions & program at 9:15 a.m. This is 30 minutes earlier than what we had been doing. We received a suggestion to start earlier to help accommodate some of the retail businesses that could not make it with the 9:30 start time. We will implement the earlier time frame on a 3 month trial.
The next change is the name of the weekly networking gathering from Chamber Coffee to Chamber Connections. The new name encompasses the purpose of the weekly gathering. Chamber Connections is an opportunity for our members to network, build business relationships and to be more familiar with other businesses in our community. There is great value in being a member of the Chamber of Commerce and hosting a Chamber Connection as well as being a member and attending. Big shout out to Craft Coffee, 120 N. Main for partnering with the Chamber to provide Chamber Connection hosts with 2 FREE carafes of coffee.
If you are not a Chamber member, the Chamber Connections is one of the many benefits of membership. The Chamber does the behind the scenes work to pull together events and networking opportunities – the member just has to show up. Plan to join us at Chamber Connections and start building those business relationships.
