Champaign Chamber to host networking events in March

March 1, 2012 by  

The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce is giving entrepreneurs plenty of opportunities to network and learn this month.

On the 8th, Champaign business owners will need more than their regular supply of business card printing with the chamber hosting a Speed Networking event. Taken from the website:

“The Exchange and Referral Network is the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce’s version of a combination Leads / Speed Networking program.

Registration opens on Thursday, March 1 at 3 p.m. for this week’s session. Only one person per industry may participate per week, i.e. one dentist, one real estate agent, one insurance agent, etc. Registration is first come, first served. If your industry category is already filled when you register, your name will be kept on the waitlist. If the first registration is unable to attend the following week’s session, we will contact the waitlist according to the time stamp.” (sic.)

Since there are time constraints when it comes to these interactions, consulting brochure printers is an option worth looking into for this sort of thing.

Following all this on the 15th, there’s also a Chamber Business After Hours event taking place at the Fat City Bar & Grill. Starting in the evening at 5:00 pm and ending at 7:00 pm, this is another networking opportunity for business owners and professionals. Members are asked to donate $5 towards the chamber while those who aren’t members will be paying $8.

Of course, this is all without mentioning ECI SCORE’s “Financing a Small Business” Workshop on the 24th. It’s clear that professionals have options this March.
