The power of staying connected.
Mixers are not only fun, but an important way for businesses to connect, cultivate a strong sense of community, and build a sustainable business.
A benefit to all Chamber members, these networking events provide the opportunity for you to expand your knowledge, learn from the success of others, attain new clients and tell others about your business.
“It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know”. Networking provides you with a great source of connections, and opens the door to talk to highly influential people that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to easily talk to or find.
Being visible and getting noticed is a big benefit of networking. Build your reputation as a knowledgeable, reliable and supportive person by offering useful information or tips to people who need it. It’s the easiest way to raise your profile and stay top of mind!
All members are welcome to invite a non-member as a one-time guest. The guest will be contacted at a later date about the benefits of a membership.
Interested in hosting a mixer? It is a great opportunity for you to showcase your location, show off what you do and maybe even boast a little about the services you offer. Contact Elizabeth Hecock, Director of Membership & Sales today!
