5. NETWORKING: Meeting other businesses can be a challenge. The Chamber organizes Business After Hours, Luncheons, and other events where networking plays a major role. Creating relationship with other businesses can offer great rewards, whether it is in straight referrals, or working with one-another on a professional level.
