Business B4 Hours


A More Intimate, One on One, Way to Connect

Business Before Hours’ purpose is to promote our partners who can host 10-50 people for a networking event. This event will take place on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 7:45AM to 9AM. Focused around networking and conversation, you will have the opportunity to present your 30 second commercial and discuss topics provided by the Host. This is more than “pass the mic.”

RSVP to the event is recommended due to the limited space at each location. Walk-ins are welcome but not guaranteed entry based on space availability. Click “Emails Us a Question” icon to the right to notify us you would like to receive an email invitation to each event.

“We loved the feeling of intimacy that a smaller group provided. The informal atmosphere, not having a set script, really lent itself to getting to know our fellow chamber members.  As the host we had the opportunity to really explain our business and answer questions. Several members signed up for the two free sessions we offer.  We highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.  If your location is small, or you work from home, ask Michelle how you might host one of these great meetings for your business.  You won’t regret it.” ~Art Rasmussen, Phyllis Rasmussen, and Martin Rasmussen, Owners
