The offer to host a Business after Hours is a members-only benefit. Business after Hours events are a casual, social Chamber function provided for the enjoyment of its members and prospective members. Business after Hours allow Chamber members to meet one another, to introduce new and prospective members, to network and promote businesses in a relaxed social atmosphere. In general the Business after Hours are scheduled monthly from 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Hosts are responsible for the choice of food and beverage which usually includes hot and/or cold hors d’oeurves, alcoholic beverages (beer & wine) and soft drinks and water. Hosts are encouraged to display business materials, conduct tours and/or provide door prizes which represent/promote theirs or other's business. The cost to sponsor a Business after Hours is $250.00
There is typically no formal agenda, however at approximately 6:15pm the Chamber President takes a few moments to introduce the event sponsor, thank guests and members and give the sponsor the opportunity to say a few words to promote their establishment. New Chamber members in attendance are also introduced and given an opportunity to offer a"60 second commercial" about their business.
