Making Connections

From referrals, to networking functions, to business matchmaking, the Chamber's many business development programs provide opportunities to connect with potential purchasers and build business relationships throughout the year.

Some of the Chamber's most popular events include:

Business After Hours Mixers

The Chamber’s Business After Hours Mixers create an opportunity for members and non-members to mingle and build business relationships in an informal, relaxed business setting. The mixers are held six times per year, in partnership with other local business organizations and attract professionals from many industries. Check the Chamber Calendar for our upcoming mixers.


Nonprofit Council

The Nonprofit Council provides nonprofit member organizations with a venue to network, exchange ideas, collaborate and discuss public policy issues impacting the nonprofit community. 

Referral Network
