Apple Watch Efficiencies 

Facebook LIVE!
Tune in to the chamber Facebook Page
on March 22, 2017 | 12-1 p.m.
 
Whether you own an Apple Watch or ever considered buying one (for yourself or as a gift), you'll want to tune into our Facebook LIVE as we teach you how to most efficiently use your watch! Learn how to set location based reminders, make phone calls without ever touching yoru phone, and maximize your professional and personal lives using the watch.

No need to pack a sack lunch for this- kick back at your desk or watch the replay later when your schedule allows!  
 
 
Chamber YOUniversity classes are one hour, educational classes taught by members of the chamber, and are offered monthly at no charge to Chamber members only. The intent is to cover the basics of a topic and ensure participants leave having learned something concrete they can put into practice.
