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@Noon, our popular once a month, meet for lunch and relationship building event will take place on Wednesday, June 15th at A Taste of Heaven, 2817 North Avenue. 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 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, contact Trisha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quarterly Membership Meeting, June 21st at CMU. In June you have a bonus opportunity to network as we host our Quarterly Membership Meeting sponsored by ANB Banks. This month, our co-host is Colorado Mesa University with Matt Rosenberg, a CMU Professor and co-owner of RoseCap Investments sharing insights on the global economy along with a local economic perspective offered by Diane Schwenke, Chamber CEO. Expanding businesses will also be recognized. Register online at www.gjchamber.org.
Business After Hours, our most attended regularly scheduled networking event takes place on June 28th at our downtown hotels; Fairfield Inn, Hampton Inn and SpringHill Suites. Normally attended by over 200 members this event offers plenty of opportunities for dialogue in a relaxed setting. Register online at www.gjchamber.org.
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, contact Trisha at email@example.com.
