Training & Networking
In addition to our Signature Events, we host a variety of live and virtual programming to help members enhance professional skills, explore personal interests and develop rewarding friendships.
Rise & Grind
Rise & Grind is a weekly virtual networking event.
Whether you're grinding your morning coffee or getting into the grind at work, this is a great way to perk up the middle of your week.
Every Wednesday at 8:30am business professionals gather with a specific focus for each week, with topics ranging from elevating your game, growing your network, hearing from expert speakers, and once per month setting professions aside and talking about anything but business.

Our popular live, On-Location Mixers are a great members-only networking event, whether you're an attendee or the host!
Attendees meet other local professionals, exchange contact information and share their story while learning about other businesses and new opportunities in the market. Hors d’oeuvres, tastings and raffle items make for a fun and comfortable atmosphere to talk business or just make new friends. All for just five bucks!
Hosts connect with new and existing clients in their own facilities - ideal for new product launch, introducing new staff or showing off recent renovations. On-Location Mixers customarily draw 50-80 guests!

Our committees are comprised of volunteers who invest time and talent so that other people and businesses can share in the successes of a robust regional economy. Committees occasionally host their own events in response to member interest, market forces or emerging opportunities. They're a great way to get involved, build new professional relationships, and have a positive influence on the region's economy!
