Banter, Business & Beer

An opportunity for our Chamber Members to connect and network in a casual setting. Each month these are hosted by a different Chamber member which provides the opportunity for our members to share their space and speak to what they are up to.

What to Expect

These are evening events that generally take place on the third Wednesday of the month from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Light snacks and beverages are provided by the host business with the only formal structure being an update from the Chamber and a message from the host businesses which takes place around 6:30 pm. 

These are great events for our Chamber members to connect and network. This is a members only event and registration in advance is required.

These are scheduled at the beginning of the year, check out dates and times on our event calendar here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
