Business After Hours

The Greater Concord Chamber offers members lots of networking opportunities to grow their professional and personal connections. All members* are invited to attend our events on the second Tuesday of each month.

Please note: We are currently hosting virtual networking events with the expectation to return to in-person events when it is safe to do so.

Business DURING Hours

Connect with fellow members, business leaders and community members from the safety of your own home or office! Business DURING Hours is a virtual networking event that allows you to mingle within small groups and build professional relationships, grow your personal network and socialize during a time of social distancing. Register in advance to receive a link to join the Zoom meeting. You'll automatically be rotated through "breakout rooms" where you can connect via video chat with other attendees. The event also includes fun door prizes and a brief presentation from our event host. Visit our key events page to sign up for the next networking event! After registering, check your email on the event day to access your private link to join the Zoom networking event. That email will also contain detailed instructions, so you'll feel prepared to network with us, no matter what your technological comfort level is.

Business After Hours

Business After Hours are held at various host sites from 5:30-7 p.m. These popular events include door prizes, tours, hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and an energetic crowd of fellow members eager to connect with others in our growing network. Stop by for a beverage, friendly conversation, new member announcements and a run down of upcoming forums and Chamber initiatives. All who pre-register will receive a list of who is attending—a helpful tool when planning who you would like to meet. Chamber staff and Ambassadors are happy to help facilitate introductions. 

   See the full list of Chamber networking and signature events on our 2021 Events Calendar.

“We had a great time at the After Hours event. As new members we weren't sure what to expect, but we easily assimilated into the energetic - and large - crowd. My only regret is that I was too busy chatting and never had a chance to sample the hors d'oeuvres!” ~ FirstTracks Marketing

“If all your Business After Hours events are as popular as these then you may have the most party-loving membership in America. I can’t remember a reception in my 48 years that had so many people reaching out their hands to say hello and eager to have a get-acquainted conversation. Your members are truly champion meet & greeters.” ~ Stephen Barba, Plymouth State University

"I also wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed last evening. It was a very well attended event and everyone was extremely welcoming. We look forward to attending many more." ~ Kathy Lee, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty.

Sending warm thanks to everyone who joined us for lively #networking and delicious hors d'oeuvres last night at @loveringvolvocars Concord, a #familyownedbusiness with deep roots in #concordnh and around the state. Thank you Lovering Volvo for the festive, feel-good evening! Your team did a wonderful job pulling this #event together and the newly renovated showroom is beautiful. We enjoyed our time with all of you! For those who were unable to attend as well as those who are eager to connect at our next event, please join us for Business BEFORE Hours networking on March 24 and Business Showcase on April 14. Registration is open on our website.
