WHY IS NETWORKING IMPORTANT? With advancements in communications-related technology, today’s business climate is becoming more and more reliant on electronic messaging and emails. However, we all know that being successful in business takes personal face-to-face communication to build relationships. To help facilitate this interaction, the Chamber plans over 110 networking events per year – some large and some more intimate. Our events are designed to help you develop your network of contacts, collaborators, mentors, future partners, and especially customers. Join us at an upcoming event, and let the Chamber staff introduce you to our business community and members!
