Enjoy a great barbecue with the Chamber
June 4, 2012 by Sarah
The Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry are presenting their Summer Barbecue Bash networking event on July 11 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 for Chamber members and $30 for non-member. The barbecue is free to Chamber committee and task force members.
This event will be perfect for those who wish to learn more about their local chamber of commerce and to network with their fellow business leaders from Malvern and the rest of Chester County. Arranging for business card printing in advance is definitely recommended so that there will be lots of opportunity for the exchange of cards and to ensure that nobody runs out.
Summer is often a slow time for networking and events such as the Summer Barbecue Bash are more the norm than conventional seminars or educational sessions. However, business leaders should still find ways to network with their peers so they can stay current. They could contact people who they have met at previous events and try to reconnect by asking them out to lunch or to play a round of golf. Many business leaders also meet their business peers while on vacation, so packing a few business cards would be smart just in case they do have the chance to discuss their business over dinner or at a cocktail party. They should also make plans for how they are going to grow their referral network once networking season is back in full swing again. They should try to plan on which events to attend and which should be avoided.
