Business After Hours (BAH) is a staple event with not only our Chamber, but chambers all over the country! Just do a quick Google search and you’ll see them scheduled at every chamber, everywhere! If you wonder why, it’s because they serve a variety of functions:

1.  Highlight your business
2.  Get people into your business
3.  Get to know other business owners
4.  Provide a relaxed environment
5.  Socialize with other business owners whose services could be useful for your business
6.  Ability to form partnerships within the business community
7.  Enhanced awareness of what is going on within the business community
8.  Exchange of ideas
9.  Have fun!

These are just a few of the benefits of participating in scheduled BAHs. Right now we only have one scheduled for March 16th. Please see the flyer and plan on attending.

We would like to have one a month. April through December are available months. If you need help planning an event, we’re here to help. So, schedule your Business After Hours today! You’ll be glad that you did!
