The first quarter for 2021 is a busy one for the GPRC! We've got celebratory events, educational series, and networking opportunities. You can register for some and save the date for others, but you will definitely want to make sure you are there for these!
Shameless Plug
Tues, Jan 26
Shameless Plug is exactly what the name entails; a chance for you to shamelessly plug your business, an event you have coming up or something new that you're rolling out, and it's back to it's regular schedule of the last Tuesday of each month. You can register for one, a few or all of them in advance!

This event is free. Register now
Chamber in a Bottle
Thu, Jan 28
Chamber in a Bottle is where we interview a Chamber member who has an interesting story to tell. Normally, this event is called Chamber on Tap, but we've taken it online, and instead of beer on tap, it's from your fridge at home! January's guest is Rachelle from Dani + Madi, a new store in Spruce Grove.
