Chamber Business Connections
Our popular networking program held each Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. at a member business. It is a great way to showcase your company and expand relationships with fellow Chamber members. All members are welcomed to join us at CBC! A great way to start your day.

Launched in September of 2013, we offer Chamber members an evening tour of a select few local member companies. Network, get an inside view of local businesses, and meet the teams that make them successful. This is a great opportunity for our member businesses to tell their stories, extend hospitality, and connect with new faces. Shuttle service & refreshments provided.
Contact Heather Ugie to sign-up as a Business Crawl event host or sponsor!
