The Chehalem Valley Chamber sponsors a number of events that provides the opportunity to meet other members and develop new business relationships. People do business with people they know and trust and the best way to earn that confidence is through consistent involvement and subsequent visibility in the community. The power of networking is not in who you know, but who knows you! Please join us for any of the following member networking opportunities:
Greeters is the largest professional business networking group in Yamhill County. Attendance ranges from 60 to 100 participants every week. Held Fridays from 8:00 am – 9:00 am members congregate at a different business location each week. There is no better way to meet potential business clients than through a chamber networking event like Greeters. You can find our schedule on the Chamber Calendar
Chair: Kelly Hagglund, The Kelly Group
Vice-Chair: Francisco Stoller, WaterBear Cleaning & Restoration
Wine on Tuesdays
On the second Tuesday of each month a Chamber member hosts a 5 to 7 p.m. Wine On Tuesday gathering featuring wine, appetizers, music, door prizes and more. The social event, while relaxing and enjoyable, is still an effective way to network and make connections that make your business stronger.
Chair: Janet Bleck, SubTerra Restaurant
8 @ 8
8 @ 8 is a chamber focus group that meets on the third Friday of each month. Each month eight different members are invited to a hosted luncheon facilitated by a Chamber Board Member and attended by the Chamber CEO and Newberg’s Mayor. The purpose of the luncheon is to learn from our membership what local issues are having an impact on their business and gain input on how the chamber can improve the programs and services we provide to our membership.
Chair: Alan Olive
