• Network Building Nights

  • These member-driven evening events occur throughout the year. 

    They take place at member businesses throughout our region and provide great opportunities for connecting and reconnecting with other businesses.  

    In today's digital world, it is a nice change to connect with other business owners and staff in person to have a conversation about how things are going for them and to find out a good tip or two. 

    Together we are stronger.
