The Orion Area Chamber supports events that connect our business members with the community at large. One of our largest events is the Community Business Expo.
Other events we sponsor or participate in include: Networking Events, Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies and Business building workshops and educational seminars.
We invite our members to participate in these events and to consider becoming a sponsoring partner. Check our Sponsorship Opportunities page for more information on how you can promote your business at one of these events.
- Networking - After hours networking will take place from 5-6:30 pm at local restaurants, bars and pubs that are Chamber members. The format will consist of an informal networking for the first thirty minutes. The next sixty minutes will be “speed networking”. People will pair up with one other attendee and each person will talk about their business and exchange business cards. When the time is up each person will switch to a new networker.
- Monthly Breakfasts/Luncheons - The Chamber holds a breakfast or luncheon the first Thursday of each month providing the perfect opportunity to network with local business leaders and elected officials. For more information contact our office. We hope to see you there!
