Chamber Membership Benefits
Food and Networking over breakfast! Come and enjoy a relaxed, fun-filled environment where networking is optimal. Usually held on the 2nd Friday of every month at Tia Lupes. Every business is welcome and receives 30 seconds to talk about their business. Free breakfast, lots of laughs, and great networking so you can “Kick Your Friday Off Right!”
Business After Hours
Business After Hours is held the third Thursday of every month at a hosting business from 5:30-7:00 pm. This is a very relaxed and social environment for your business to network with fellow business men and women. Bring your business cards and hand them out like candy! With the hosting business providing door prizes, refreshments, and sometimes even live entertainment, Business After Hours is not to be missed!
Every quarter a new subject, every quarter a new presenter. With such a wide variety of educational subjects to cover for small and large business, and with such a pool of educated professionals willing to share their expertise, the Chamber of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center has joined forces to offer monthly Training Sessions. A low cost for Chamber Members of only $10.00 and for Non-Chamber Members of only $15.00 it’s affordable for everyone! Subjects range from website development to government procurement. Come and enjoy morning refreshments before the class at 8:30 am. Knowledge is power!
