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!
The August Chamber Luncheon was sponsored by United Fiber. Ryan Haywood, Sales Coordinator, spoke to the attendees about the high-speed fiber company, which also brings phone and television access to Excelsior Springs. A video that was played stated their new TV platform is “like cable TV, just better.” The United Fiber TV app allows streaming on additional devices, such as a phone, tablet or computer. Clients also have access to DVD programs from home.
United Fiber is currently building out several zones in Excelsior Springs to provide overall coverage of the city and will include surrounding communities in its coverage as well. Interested persons can contact the company at 660-224-2574. The company has an office locally at 529 St. Joseph St., behind the post office.
The luncheon was catered by Willow Spring Mercantile. The $1 donation pot benefited the Chamber trolley.
