are scheduled on days when there is no other planned chamber event. 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

for the time of day. All attendees have the opportunity to network with
each other. The member(s) hosting has the added opportunity to spotlight
their business in more detail to the entire group and to offer mini tours
of their location or samples of services/products. 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
