Business After Hours:

On Thursdays

Chamber members enjoy the benefits of networking through these after-hours social meetings. The events are sponsored by Chamber businesses and organizations, and are open to all members. Sponsors hold the events at their place of business, and can use the event 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. Admission is free to all Bartow Chamber members.
