Celebrate the arrival of summer with the Chamber

June 12, 2012 by  

The Summer’s Here Mixer presented by the ViennaTysons Regional Chamber of Commerce will take place at The Business Bank on June 19 from 4:30 – 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15 in advance for Chamber members and $20 for non-members; $5 is added to each price if purchased at the door. Members are encouraged to bring a guest, if they do they both get in free.

Attendees will be treated with food from Famous Dave’s and Sweet City Desserts. They will also have the chance to network with their business peers from Vienna and Tyson Corner. As with all networking events, it is important to bring a business card. Printing extras will ensure that there will be enough cards for everyone who wants one.

Networking starts to slow down over the summer; everyone is too busy thinking of vacations or planning other outdoor activities. However, it is still important to try and keep in touch over the summer; inviting a client out to lunch or to a barbecue is one way to stay in touch. Summer is also a time to plan the business calendar for the next year. It is important that business men and women take the time to study their networking opportunities for the coming year and decide which would be more beneficial or worth their time. Time really is money and it’s important for a business man or woman to not waste their energy on networking events that will not translate into increased sale or business.
