Join us for our monthly networking luncheons!
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. 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!
The Excelsior Springs School District, sponsors of the September Chamber Luncheon, provided information on its new flexible modular schedule with community members through student impressions. High School Principal John Newell, standing right, said the flex mod scheduling was one piece of continuous improvements being made to help students graduate ready for the world. In addition, Elkhorn Elementary students talked about using binders to help them become better organized, a skill that will aid them throughout their lives. A video presentation stressed the mission of the ESSD: Working together to discover potential, explore passions, and develop leadership for all learners.

The September Business of the Month was Ameren Missouri. Mike Edwards, Customer Service Advisor for Ameren, introduced Rob Yakel, Business Development Representative with Lockheed Martin, pictured right. Lockheed Martin is the administrator for Ameren’s Business Energy Efficiency programs. Rob explained energy efficiency incentives that are available to commerial companies. All sizes of business, including small business owners, can benefit through the Ameren Missouri BizSavers program that is designed to help reduce the upfront costs associated with upgrading to more energy efficient equipment. It provides cash incentives for LED lighting. Business owners get cash back for almost any energy-saving improvement, from lighting to ventilation – and event custom projects.
