Membership Events

These are Chamber events designed specifically for Chamber members. Each of these events gives your business the potential for networking, marketing and just raising awareness of your business in the community. We encourage all Chamber members to participate in as many of these events as possible!

Business After Hours

Graciously hosted by a different Chamber member business each month, Business After Hours gathers area business leaders and community members to network in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. The host organization has an opportunity to showcase their business while guests exchange useful information or just unwind and socialize. It is a relationship-building experience held in a relaxed setting, featuring refreshments and occasionally, live entertainment. Chamber staff and volunteers are available to make member-to-member connections, all in the spirit of strengthening community bonds and shared business interests. Business After Hours usually occur the second Thursday of each month from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.

Please be advised, your event’s date is not secured until confirmed with our Director of Membership Services, Sigrid Velez-Nelson.
