Join us for our monthly networking luncheons!
Chamber Director Tosha Jackson introduces new community branding “Excelsior Springs Forward”.
Each month, our members are invited to a FREE networking luncheon on the third Wednesday of each month (except April). The luncheons are from 11:30am to 1:00pm and are held at the Montgomery Event Venue, except in December when we meet at the Elms Hotel and Spa for our holiday luncheon, pictured above. The luncheons are sponsored by various businesses and organizations in our community. Dollar donations are accepted at the door to benefit a local non-profit. Each month a business card is drawn for the opportunity to be a featured Chamber business of the Month, so members are encouraged to bring their business cards and participate. The business selected will be featured on the Chamber website for a month, and will have the chance to talk briefly about their business. Plus, there are door prizes at each luncheon too. An average of 100-125 people attend, so it’s a great opportunity to meet other business people in our community!

Executive Director Tosha Jackson announced the new Chamber community improvement movement, “Excelsior Springs Forward”, during the luncheon. The Chamber will be joined by other community organizations to invite residents to work together to make our community better and to shop local, play local, and volunteer local. A kick-off party is being planned on Saturday, March 10 at the Excelsior Springs Community Center. Join the Chamber from 1 to 3 p.m. for snacks, music, and giveaways. Social media is invited to use the hashtag #ESForward.
