Business After Hours
Our monthly Business after Hours is the area's premier networking event. It offers our members a chance to kick back after work and socialize away from the pressures of the workplace. We encourage meeting new people and introducing them to your business.
How to Host a Business after Hours Event
Held each month, on the third Tuesday from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Business after Hours offers sponsors a chance to promote their businesses and take their message to other chamber members in a relaxed atmosphere.
