Chamber members enjoy the benefits of networking through these after-hours social meetings. The events are sponsored by Chamber businesses/organizations, and are free to all members. Sponsors hold the events at their places of business, and can use the events to introduce new personnel or services, as well as to update fellow members on changes or expansion plans.
The Chamber President, (or his/her designee), introduces a sponsor representative to welcome their guests and promote the business. Sponsors provide food and refreshments. The after hours events usually start at 5:00 p.m. and sometimes run past 7:00 p.m. Some are themed, and some are just plain get togethers. Adult beverages are served, most of the time.
