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 Chamber recently received an 2017 Innovator Award for the success of the Chamber trolleys. Local businesses and volunteers who have made the program a success were recognized during the October luncheon, pictured above. The Innovator Award, held by Chamber Director Tosha Jackson, second from left, was awarded by the Missouri Division of Tourism.
The October luncheon was sponsored by Excelsior Springs Clinic, an affiliate of Liberty Hospital. David Feess, President and CEO, spoke of pride in our community. “The Liberty Clinic is a great location and a great investment in the community,” David said. He shared a story about an Excelsior Springs resident who was recently in one of Liberty Hospital facilities who said three things he takes pride in locally are the improvements at the Excelsior Springs Golf Club, the improvements in our downtown and the Wabash BBQ. “What each business and member of a community brings, we should take pride in,” David said. He also reminded those in attendance about some upcoming events for our residents to take part in. Trunk or Treat will be held at the Liberty Hospital on October 28, 3 to 5 p.m. On March 3, 2018, the 2nd Annual Half Marathon/5K will be held which drew a number of Excelsior Springs residents last year. Sponsorships are still available. Visit the website for more information on events.
The October Business of the Month was new member 69 Auto Sales, LLC. Owned by Luke and Crystie Holsey and managed with business partner Jimmie Frost, the business buys, sells and trades autos and provides mechanic services. Luke, pictured at right, talked about how the Excelsior Springs community provided opportunities for him growing up here, as well as opportunities which led him into being able to have a business here. The Team 69 Auto Sales are here to serve the community. To read more about Team 69 Auto Sales’ commitment to the community, visit the Business of the Month page.
