The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce provides a wide array of networking opportunities for its members. Whether you prefer early morning or after work to meet, greet and make new contacts—the Chamber has events to suit your needs!
Coffee Connections & Business BeforeHours
Develop potential leads and build business relationships before the workday begins! Throughout the month, many of our Chamber members host meet-and-greet sessions at their places of business. Attendance at these easy-going, unstructured sessions is usually high, so bring plenty of business cards. Who knows? You might have a brand new customer before your workday has even begun.
If you would like to host a Business BeforeHours or Coffee Connections at your location, please contact Jack Stevens at 704-892-1922. This is a simple and affordable way for people to see your location and market your business to the entire Chamber membership.
Speed networking at the Chamber meets on the 2nd Friday of each month from 7:30 am to 9 am at Sam's Club 646 River Highway in Mooresville with the three local chambers: Mooresville South Iredell, Statesville, and Lake Norman Chambers of Commerce. The Chambers get together for a unique regional event. Sam's provides a hot breakfast and each attendee gets an opportunity to meet business owners and mangers from other markets. Speed networking takes away the usual awkwardness of trying to break into a conversation already in progress as well as preventing one individual from monopolizing a conversation. Everyone gets equal time to spread their message. It is an exciting combination of 2-minute conversations that make up the fastest hour in Chamber networking.
Ribbon Cuttings & Mixers
Upon joining the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce, or if you've recently expanded/renovated, one of the first opportunities you'll have to get to know your fellow members and introduce them to your business is to have a Ribbon Cutting or Mixer. If you would prefer to have a simple ribbon cutting ceremony, you'll have the opportunity to borrow the Chamber's oversized scissors for the event. You may also extend your ribbon cutting event by also having a Mixer. The Chamber will also help you publicize your ribbon cutting, announcing to our membership via our website event calendar and newsletter. Ambassadors and other Chamber staff will also be onsite for the occasion.
Mixers are less formal, generally with food and drink, and can be scheduled at any time with a minimum of 10 days notice. We request that you try to hold your event during normal weekday business hours, if possible. To schedule a Ribbon Cutting or Mixer, please contact Jack Stevens at 704-892-1922.
Business AfterHours and Chamber Mixers
Unwind after your workday, enjoy refreshments and connect with the local business community. Business AfterHours is a relaxing way to end your day, meet people, and enhance your business and personal relationships. Attendance is always high, so bring plenty of business cards!
Business AfterHours and Business Mixer events are generally held the first and third Thursday of every month. If you would like to host one of these highly sought after events at your business—limited to 24 per year—please contact Jack Stevens at 704-892-1922.
