Providing networking opportunities to help our members grow their businesses is one of the primary objectives of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce. Networking isn't just about having lunch or chatting over a glass of wine. It's about sharing information, learning about each other's business and helping grow each other's business. Networking can take many forms. It happens at our events designed specifically for networking (like our Business After 5, our Business Before 9, or our Showcase events). Networking also happens on our committees and at our seminars, it happens at our Business Awards Gala and our Golf Tournament, and it happens when our members meet each other in a restaurant and on the street. Networking is a very powerful way to grow your business and the Chamber makes developing relationships through networking easier.
The Chamber works hard to provide networking opportunities for all our members. Our Programs Committee designs and schedules events designed specifically to maximize your networking opportunities. We even host seminars to teach you how to get the most out of networking events. Our events are designed specifically so that you can meet suppliers, customers, new business-people and peers.
