Chamber Networking Events
All new members are invited to participate in a New Member Orientation. These orientations are typically held from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. right before a networking mixer. Attendance at an orientation is free and the Chamber treats everyone to one free drink as well. The mixers are facilitated by a member of the Chamber's staff - - typically the President Todd Shimkus - - who gives a brief introduction to the Chamber and then asks attendees "why did you join the Chamber and what do you hope to get from this investment?" As new members answer these questions, Todd then describes what programs and initiatives the Chamber organizes to meet those needs and expectations. For more details on the Chamber's next New Member Orientation, please contact Keith VanVeghten, our VP for Events, at 518-584-3255.
