“Networking builds relationships. Relationships are important as most people prefer to do business with someone they know and trust. Although it isn’t just about networking, but about gaining friends, associates and even advocates.”
Your participation in monthly Business after Hours, Committee Meetings, Ribbon Cutting Events/Open Houses, Chamber’s Annual Meeting, Chamber Night at Merlefest, Chamber Foundation Golf Tournament, and the Annual Business Appreciation Breakfast, will enable you to consistently interact with people outside your normal routines, and provide the opportunity to build relationships. In turn, you will improve your relationship building skills and improve the non-business aspects of your life as well.
