On the third Tuesday of each month, the Chamber conducts a networking event consisting of a 7:30 AM "Early Bird" Coffee followed by a "meet-everybody" membership meeting with sit-down breakfast. These monthly breakfasts, seminars and programs are designed to provide members with the information needed to improve the bottom line of your business, while providing a friendly atmosphere to make contact with other business people and community leaders. Networking events are regularly addressed by - and offer unique access to - a wide array of business leaders and key public officials. Several times during the year, the Chamber holds All-Networking events with no other business than members "doing business," plus social events such as the regular Golf/Tennis outing (July) and Annual Dinner (September).
