Chamber launches networking event
As the new year begins, the Estacada Chamber of Commerce has launched a new event.
Business After Hours will allow attendees to connect and network with one another in a relaxed setting. The first event will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11, at Fearless Brewing Company, 326 Broadway St. Light refreshments will be provided, and the evening will feature a no host bar.
"(Our goal is to) explore another way that Chamber members can gather to network, get together and talk about what they do and get to know other businesses," said Brent Dodrill, president of the Estacada Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber will alternate hosting Business After Hours events and Good Morning Estacada, another networking event that was revived this year, each month.
"We hope to meet different schedule needs," Dodrill added.
He believes both events will be valuable for attendees.
"(It's an opportunity) to connect with some new people," he said. "A lot of good happens when you sit and talk to people."
