How can I connect with other chamber members?

 

Networking is the best benefit of being a Chamber member! Get to know your fellow members and be astounded at the resources you have at a handshake.

Monthly Chamber Networking/Learning lunch meetings are usually the third Monday of each month at 11:45 a.m. Members are asked to RSVP by the prior Wednesday, and pay at the door with cash, check, or debit/credit card (MC and Visa). Speakers and networking are the focus. 

Many of our meetings are "on the road" at member locations, offering a great way to learn more about fellow members and their facilities. Meetings typically conclude by 1 p.m.
