NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

RIBBON CUTTING                     
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony can be an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to kick-off a business milestone.  It offers an opportunity to meet your neighbors and the other Chamber members.  We would be delighted to help your business celebrate with a Grand Opening, Ribbon Cutting or Groundbreaking Ceremony given the following criteria:

  • New business within the last 12 months
  • A ground breaking
  • Changed ownership or under new management
  • Moved to a new location
  • Has extensively remodeled or expanded its present location

 
The Chamber Staff will help by:

- Encouraging the Chamber's Board of Directors, Ambassadors, and 
members to attend your event     
- Recommend Chamber Businesses that can provide catering, deli 
and/or beverage services, if you desire    
- Providing the ribbon and scissors    
- Promoting your event on the Chamber newsletter calendar of events, website, Weekly Email Update and newsletter following the event. 

FIRST FRIDAY COFFEE
Consider highlighting your business by hosting a 1st Friday Coffee Connection. You provide a continental breakfast, the opportunity to showcase your business, introduce your staff, donate a prize for a business card drawing and provide an area for members to network with each other.

SPOTLIGHT LUNCH:
Restaurant members are encouraged to host a Spotlight Lunch at their business. Normally held from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, members are invited to bring their friends and co-workers   to enjoy lunch at your restaurant.  As the host, the restaurant offers free soft drinks, coffee or tea with any meal purchase.

We will promote the event through the Chamber newsletter, 
the Weekly Email updates and the website calendar of events. 
Everyone is welcome, members and non-members. 
No reservation necessary.
