When less is more.

Facilitated Networking Groups 

Participants in the chamber’s facilitated networking groups meet once or twice a month (at various times/locations) to exchange referrals, discuss business best practices and/or build relationships. Open exclusively to chamber members, the groups are led by fellow members and fall into two categories: Small Networking Groups and Affinity Groups

Small Networking Groups 

Increase sales, grow your business with the passing of qualified business referrals and leads, share best practices and resources or engage in business development training. 

Only one profession, occupation or specialty is allowed per group and an individual may only be in one group. If you would like more information about opportunities, contact the group leader directly.
