This popular monthly networking breakfast event draws 100+ people!
How it works
Chamber Ambassadors, Board Members, and Chamber Staff welcome you to choose a table of business friends or potentially new contacts. There is always a large group of first-time attendees and member prospects (non-Members may attend one Connection Breakfast before joining the Chamber). Before breakfast is available everyone spends their time introducing or reconnecting with one another. Friends and acquaintances are more likely to do business with each other than with someone they don’t know. Don’t forget your business cards and materials for the networking table!
As an attendee at the event, you’ll have 20 seconds to stand and introduce your business. The Chamber awards prizes to their favorite commercials – so be creative and engaging!
Members are invited to bring prizes for drawings held throughout the morning.
The HOT SHEET is a complete listing of all attendees who have paid for reservations by noon the Wednesday before breakfast. Being on the HOT SHEET is useful because as you give your commercial you save time by not having to give your phone number, address or website; you can simply state that you are “#88” on the HOT SHEET instead. You will see people circling your number for future reference instead of losing their attention and their interest.
Chamber members appear on the HOT SHEET distributed to all guests. Deadline to get on the HOT SHEET is by noon the Wednesday before the event.
