Making the Most of Your Chamber Membership
- Attend Forum Meetings the 2nd Monday of the month at O’Blarney’s from 11:30am to 1pm: This is an excellent way to stay informed, learn new ideas, and network with fellow business owners.
- Attend a Business After Hours (BAH) on the Third Thursday of the Month: These events are hosted by area businesses and have food, beverages, fun, and prizes. They are a great networking opportunity as well. Consider hosting one!

The cost is only $50 a year and the time commitment is reasonable. Find an Ambassador at the next event and ask them why they love being one.
