If you're looking for new connections that lead to professional and volunteer opportunities as well as friendship, you've found the right chamber.
Our regular networking events are known for their open, friendly vibe. Options include virtual networking events , special Signature events, and in non-COVID times, in-person a.m. and p.m. networking events—our well-attended Business After Hours events average 200+ attendees!
Business DURING Hours virtual networking is held on Zoom the second Tuesday of most months from 4-5 p.m. Signature events take the networking spotlight during the months in which they fall, and we're offering two of the state's biggest virtual networking events at our upcoming Citizen of the Year virtual gala on March 30 at 4 p.m., and Virtual Business Showcase on April 13 from 3-5 p.m. All are welcome and encouraged to attend these COVID-safe networking events on Remo, a highly interactive virtual event space where you can seek out others to network with on video and send them your contact information at the click of a mouse! Remo is cutting-edge yet fun and complimentary to use—no software purchase or downloads required! All you need is a web browser on a device with a camera and microphone.
The Chamber is proud to offer educational and enrichment opportunities through programming like our Monthly Forums, Webinars, initiatives with Concord Young Professionals Network, Leadership Greater Concord, Chamber Connections meet-up group, active volunteer committees and more.
