School is out for the summer but businesses don’t take a summer vacation. In fact, if things are slowing down a bit in your business this is the ideal time to engage in some networking activities to build your client and referral base. The Chamber has multiple opportunities for you to utilize this month:
• Networking at Noon, our popular once a month, meet for lunch and relationship building event will take place on Wednesday, June 19th at Buffalo Wild Wings. The event features assigned seating at small tables of 4-6 individuals from different businesses along with conversation-starting questions. From there it is up to you to get to know each other and make that business connection. Every effort is made to seat individuals with different business representatives each month of the year. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
• In June, you have a bonus opportunity to network at our Quarterly Membership Meeting, June 17th at the DoubleTree by Hilton, presented by Venture Advocates and sponsored in part by Asset Engineering Limited, Capital Business Systems, and Moody Insurance Agency. This meeting is a must for anyone in business that is feeling like their workplace is always in a state of chaos. Our speaker, Corinne Hancock is known as a chaos coach (to learn more visit https://corinnehancock.com/thriving-in-chaos/). Learn strategies to adapt your thoughts and plans on a moment’s notice, lead through uncertainty, and thrive in chaos. To register, visit www.gjchamber.org.
Expanding businesses will also be recognized and if you have recently expanded and would like to be part of the awards
ceremony, email email@example.com.
• Business After Hours, our most attended regularly scheduled networking event takes place on June 25th at SpringHill Suites, Downtown Grand Junction. Normally attended by over 175 members this event offers plenty of opportunities for dialogue in a relaxed setting. This is a members-only event and registration can be made at www.gjchamber.org or by calling 970-242-3214.
• Leads Groups are the Chamber’s ongoing weekly long-term networking venue. Up to 25 members of non-competing businesses get together for one hour to offer one-minute updates from the businesses and hear an in-depth business presentation from one of the members. The groups meet on Thursday morning, Thursday noon or Friday morning and interested members are invited to attend a meeting with the group they are interested in prior to applying to ensure that it is a good fit. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
