"Connect" at the Chamber

Chambers of Commerce have long been recognized as the most effective networking organizations in any community and our new Connections program will provide our Chamber members another way to tap into the power.
   Connections is a special program that promotes business opportunities among Chamber members by:

  • Developing on-going relationships among members.

  • Creating awareness of other members' products and services

  • Utilizing the products and services of members

  • Generating and exchanging leads. 

   Each Connections meeting will have a set agenda that has been developed to facilitate networking opportunities. Time is set aside for both informal discussions among members as well as formal presentations given by members who have prepared a review of their company and its products or services.
   Meetings are held on alternate Thursdays at 7:30 a.m. in the Chamber boardroom. Membership is restricted to Chamber members in good standing and is limited to one member for each of the Chamber's business categories. The annual membership fee is $50.
   If you are interested in this program that guarantees networking exclusivity to your business, product or service, contact Leslie at the Chamber at 519-753-2617. Those who are the first to confirm and pay their membership fee will be accepted into the Connections program.

Business After Hours
