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 May luncheon was sponsored by the Excelsior Springs Hospital. Nanette Houck, pictured, spoke on behalf of the hospital. She announced that Kristen DeHart has been hired to replace Sally Nance as chief executive officer. Sally retired last December as CEO after serving for 26 years. Kristen will begin her duties on June 2. Nanette introduced several hospital doctors and staff members who were in attendance. Upcoming hospital events include the 27th Annual Golf Tournament to be held June 2 at the Excelsior Springs Golf Course and Men’s Health Fair to be held June 14 at the hospital. Luncheon dollar donations will benefit the Community Health Education Fund. For more information on the hospital, outpatient clinic, wellness center, convalescent center, residential care center or independent living center, visit the hospital website.
