If you don't have a location that is suitable for an event such as this or would just like to share expenses and responsibilities, consider co-hosting with another member and share in the costs and the results!

Chamber Chatter Connections can be a "Coffee Connection" in the morning (usually from 7:30am to 9:00am) or an "After Hours Mixer" in the evening (usually from 5:30pm to 7:00pm).

All attendees have the opportunity to network with each other.

These events give others an opportunity to see what the host business does and how well they do it! The host(s) receives copies of sign-in sheets and business cards of attendees to make future contacts with their guests.

Don't forget, as an attendee, to bring your Business Cards to give to those with whom you would like to make future contact. There will be NO display table, but you may hand out your Brochures and/or Promotional items if you wish.

Sometimes a brand new member is opening a new business and wants to celebrate that Grand Opening with the community. Or they may be expanding and opening a new branch. Sometimes it is a re-opening or the celebration of a new line of products or services. There are also instances of a name change or a merger with another company. In all these instances the chamber is ready and willing to support and promote this advancement and growth for its members and the community.

Take advantage of this excellent opportunity for other members and guests from the community to see what the host business does while expanding their network of business contacts. So if you have something to celebrate, let us know and we will be pleased to join you in the celebration!
