Chamber Connections is a quarterly series that focuses on the political environment within the State Capitol. Each program is designed to be a non-partisan, informational presentation that addresses topics that directly and indirectly affect Chamber members. The goal of Chamber Connections is to inform and educate members while encouraging their participation in the political process.
The Chamber's Women's Network meets monthly to strengthen business relationships, hear topical speakers and develop leadership. The Women's Network is all about business and building relationships! This event is usually held on the second Wednesday monthly, excluding July and August. Early Networking begins at 11:30 a.m., buffet lunch at noon, speaker at 12:30, and adjourns at 1:00 p.m.
The Chamber organizes free monthly networking receptions for members by pairing with host businesses. The host business pays a nominal fee to the Chamber and agrees to host the reception with food and drink in an acceptable venue. Attendance may range from 75 to 300. Business After Hours occur monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
