CONNECT for LUNCH
Have you Connected for Lunch Yet???
Many Spartanburg Area Chamber members are now enjoying the benefits of this new program.
Here's how it works:
- The ConnectForLunch program will put you in a group with two or three Chamber members.
- Four days before lunch you are given the bios for each person in your lunch group and they receive yours along with details on the location.
- ConnectForLunch makes the restaurant reservation at a Chamber member restaurant...all you have to do is show up on the lunch day.
- You'll have everyone's name and contact details in your private ConnectForLunch available online 24/7...no writing on the back of business cards!
