The Chamber host a variety of events throughout the year that provide networking opportunities, education and business exposure.
Connecting face to face with business leaders builds your network, generates leads and advances your company's visibility in the community.
Lunch Mobs are hosted at a different restaurant the third Wednesday of every month. There is no need to RSVP, just show up and power network! The first 10 guests to arrive receive $2.00 off of their lunch, and the Chamber will pay for one lucky guest’s lunch in full. We encourage guests to sit with a new group of people each month. The host restaurant will provide fun trivia questions to help break the ice!

Business After Hours offer FREE appetizers and are held at a different member location four times a year. As a guest, it’s a perfect opportunity to network in a relaxed environment and have fun! As a host, you'll bring numerous business and community leaders inside your doors providing an opportunity to showcase your services and introduce your staff.

Lunch & Learn
Luncheons are a great way to network and educate yourself. We bring in speakers the first Thursday every other month to present on topic relevant to the business community’s needs.
