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, 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!
Talented Tots Learning Center of Excelsior Springs was the sponsor of the August luncheon, catered by El Maguey Mexican Restuarant. With five locations in the Northland, the Excelsior Springs center is celebrating its Anniversary this August. Lindsey Moehlman, manager, talked about expanded classroom opportunities for 20 more pre-schoolers coming soon. The center provides care for children 6 weeks to 12 years old. The business partners with other community entities, such as Parks & Recreation, and participates in community events, such as the parades. “We have a lot of fun here,” said Lindsey. “We enjoy the town and small town atmosphere.”
The Chamber Business of the Month was Excelsior Springs Hospital. Speaking on behalf of the hospital was CEO Kristen DeHart. Kristen introduced Dr. Chris Standley, Internal Medicine, who has joined the staff full-time to care for admitted patients.
Kristen updated the attendees on several events including a Community Health Forum that will be held at the Excelsior Springs Hospital in Community Room 1 on September 13 from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. Persons interested in attending should contact Danielle Roethler at 816-595-4213 or send an email. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Hospital is also partnering with the Northland Health Alliance in its 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment, which includes an online survey. Please feel free to share the link with friends, co-workers,and neighbors. “The three year Northland Survey provides real-time perception of what our health care needs are,” said Kristen.
The community is also invited to the hospital August 17 to share in the retirement celebration of Jim Craven, who has served at the hospital for 50 years. The party will be held in Community Room 1 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
