Our monthly luncheon has been moved for this month ONLY to the beautiful Pine Meadows Venue in Willow Springs and the lunch will be catered by Leslie's Catering LLC. Our speakers will be from OzSBI and they will be having a presentation on the solar eclipse and their big event on May 11 called EPIC: An Ozarks Eclipse Experience. They will be hosting a national speaker and offering workshops to help cities and businesses prepare.
This event only is RSVP by March 27th so our hosts can properly prepare.
Attn: Chamber Members
Join us on Tuesday April 26th for our monthly Business After Hours event. This month's event will be hosted by our Willow Springs Police and Fire Departments. Come and meet your Willow Springs First Responders, tour their buildings and see how they work. These ladies & gentlemen are doing amazing work under intense conditions with a limited budget. They have agreed to host this event and give us the opportunity to meet them, network and visit with other Chamber members in a relaxed atmosphere, and see what they do up close and personal. This event is open to Chamber members and their guests. If you aren't a Chamber member please go over to the JOIN tab and put in your membership now!
The Business After Hours program is a new program we hope will help highlight individual businesses throughout the year and provide our membership with an opportunity to meet and network with each other to strengthen our business community even more!. This event is held at the convenience of the host business after closing, which allows a unique atmosphere for our members to gather together. The Business After Hours program serves two purposes. The event allows the host to showcase its business, services, and facilities to the business community and it offers chamber members the chance to meet one another and network in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
The following provisions and guidelines have been established to assist in the positive outcome of the Business After Hours program.
The host must be a current chamber member in good standing at the time the event is booked and at the time it is held. If you are not yet a member, join today!
The chamber will market the Business After Hours event in the newsletter, on the chamber’s website event page, and on the chamber’s social media pages.
The host will provide the chamber with their logo and background information to be used in promotional materials including date & time of their choosing.
The location of the event will be the host member’s business.
The chamber staff/board will be in attendance and assist the host with preparations prior to the event and throughout the evening.
The host business may choose to provide one or two raffle items to be given out during the event.
The host should provide an area for collection of business cards for the drawing. If a business does not have a business card, they can provide their business name on paper to be provided by the host business.
The event should reflect the host’s personality and style. Feel free to display any promotional materials or items for attendees. This can include promotional give-aways.
The host business will determine what, if any refreshments will be served and can range from coffee & cookies to various beverages and finger foods. We have several businesses in town that can assist with this including G&W, Town & Country, Ozarks Sweetest Bakery, and several restaurants which may be able to provide appetizer trays upon request. This is up to the host business to determine their own budgetary and space limitations.
The event is open to attendance by current Chamber members and their guests only.
