Networking Thursdays Overview

For the past 21 years, the second Thursday of every month is the Chamber's signature Networking Thursday or NT! The NT is intended for members to meet and do business together in a fun and relaxed environment. It is time to network, meet other Capital Area LGBT and allied business owners, entrepreneurs, professionals, association members and make connections.

This event is the Chamber’s most popular and longest running event. We have had over 90 people attend recent NT events. Normal attendance is between 60 and 80 people.

"Mark, I wanted to thank you and Ernesto for having allowed me to host the event this month, I did enjoy it; my expectations regarding the turn out were exceeded. Even we were a bit shoulder to shoulder at a times, it was a very nice environment and I think that the attendants feel that too. Best regards,"
