We are very excited to announce that for our June 9th Chamber Luncheon, we are bringing back the NETWORKING LUNCHEON!!

Our Networking Luncheons are where members get the opportunity to showcase their business by purchasing a networking space. New members find the Networking Luncheons especially beneficial in introducing themselves and their business to the Chamber community. 


We are very excited to be able to offer these types of luncheon programs once again as they are well received and well attended… not to mention, quite fun!

Networking Tables are being offered to all new 2022 Members and Sponsors FIRST... we will open networking space to other members as space allows, after May 20th.
