Not Just Shrimp & Grits...
About This Years Event: Join us at the Anderson Civic Center for the 2017 Gain Momentum Business Exposition and Taste of the Chamber. This is a family-friendly, pro-business and community event! This year’s Expo has been revamped to better showcase local Chamber businesses. Come spend the evening getting to know area businesses, their professionals, products, and the services they provide. You can sample a variety of delicious food from local restaurants. This year it’s not just shrimp and grits, restaurants will be providing a sample of what they serve at their establishments.

In 2016 the Art Slam Live was introduced to the Gain Momentum Business Exposition. With the help of the Anderson Arts Center we are bringing back the Art Slam for 2017! Art Slam Live is a live art event, mixed with visual art and friendly competition, to music and performed before a live audience. The competing artists have no idea what the theme or subject matter will be until minutes before they go “live.” Artists have limited time to express their vision before a live audience. When time is called the winner is determined by the viewers!
Keeping You Connected Lunches
Are you looking for an easy and productive way to network with other Chamber members during a time you’re already taking for yourself at lunch? 

Welcome to a concept we have created called “Keeping You Connected”. We are assembling lunches so that you can join in connected conversations with other business professionals that are members of YOUR Chamber. Our next luncheon meeting will be held on Thursday, August 17 at any of these amazing Chamber member restaurants: 

11:00-12:00 Honey Baked Ham 
11:30-12:30 El Jimador II
12:30-1:30 Stoney's BBQ
1:00-2:00 JC Restaurant

All you need to do is select the time/location that best suits your schedule on the selected day. You can then email me letting me know what location you would like to attend. I will handle the rest with the restaurant. All you will be responsible for is the price of your meal. I know you will find this to be a wonderful way to get more involved with your peers. Please email me your restaurant selection/time:
