Business Matters Lunch Series

"Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled."
     Howard Stevenson

A primary element in the Chamber’s mission for the past 21 years is to support and assist the entrepreneur. The purpose of the Business Matter Lunch Series is to create an educational forum and daytime networking opportunity dedicated to small business issues and leaders.
 
This luncheon series brings expert advice from proficient specialists on a variety of subjects that directly affect the small business leader or those contemplating a new business venture.
 
This event typically sells out in advance at 35 – 40 people.
