When less is more.

Small Group Networking

Participants in the chamber’s small networking groups increase sales and grow their business with the passing of qualified business referrals and leads within the group. Many of the groups also 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.

Please note that participation in a networking group is by invitation of the group and open to chamber members only.
