Chamber Connects - May 2013

Friday, May 17, 2013

We recently introduced Chamber Connects for our members, a creative version of speed networking. For our May event, we had 28 participants, and the room was vibrant with enthusiastic networkers. The energy in the room was very positive, and people really looked like they were connecting. We are, of course, very grateful to SuitePerks for their sponsorship of the venue for this event. We hope you can join us for the next one!

Here are a couple of photos from the event, check out our Facebook page at to see more!

What is Chamber Connects? We like to think of it as a creative version of speed networking. Rather than the very intense one-on-one setup used in traditional speed networking, Chamber Connects gives you the opportunity to speak to a table full of potential contacts, and then answer any questions they may have. Each person at the table gets this same opportunity, and the connections you make are much more conversational and interactive, which is a great foundation for building long-lasting business relationships. After each person at the table has taken their turn, you all get up, switch tables, and start making even more connections!



This full afternoon event is a great investment of your time and energy to build your business network - so mark your calendars, gather up your business cards & promotional materials, and register today!
