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 July luncheon was sponsored by the First United Methodist Church of Excelsior Springs. Pastor Laura Blevins introduced Joyce Green, who provided an overview of the Treehouse Preschool program. First United Methodist Church began the preschool in 1977, open to three and four year olds in the community. It has become one of Excelsior Springs’ most loved preschools, managed by Darla Sims. A video presentation was also presented. Treehouse Preschool is now accepting new students for fall enrollment. See Chamber directory for contact information.
Mark Spohn, right, owner and innkeeper of The Payne Jail House Bed & Breakfast spoke as featured business of the month. He and his wife, Anna Sue, bought the property on Concourse street in 2013 and opened in September of 2016. “We have had guests almost every weekend since we opened,” Mark said. He provided a brief history of the Bill Payne home, the home of longtime police chief. The bed & breakfast has three rooms available. For more about the bed and breakfast, click here.
