NETWORKING IN THE MORNING OCTOBER 3

Networking in the Morning is held every other month, the first Tuesday of even months. It's our Before Hours event at which you can meet and get to know fellow chamber members.  Pitch Partners is what sets it apart from any other event we hold.  

Grab some business cards and come out on Tuesday morning, October 3rd at Edward Jones on Schmale in Carol Stream.
OCTOBER 11th LUNCHEON: MULT-CHAMBER PROGRESSIVE

At a Progressive Luncheon, you sit at three different tables where you have three different "courses" of food and meet more people than at another luncheon. Table captains assist in keeping the introductions and discussions going. When we couple the "progressive" event with a "multi-chamber" one, that multiplies the benefits and value. 

The only downside to this is that, due to the complexity of the logistics to provide the right amount of seats at the right amount of tables and assign attendees, we are not able to accommodate walk-ins. This gives more incentive to be sure you sign up by doing so early. How about today?

Bags are available to go back with each attendee. Plan ahead if you would like to put your flyer or item in the bag for no additional cost other than the event cost of $25 for members.
