  • Arrive between 8:30 and 8:40 a.m. to register and network – the meeting starts at 8:45
  • Bring business cards – there are typically 12-20 people in attendance each week, and your cards will be passed around the room for everyone to take.
    • After the meeting, you may pick up your remaining business cards on your way out. They are not kept – if you don’t pick them up, they get tossed out.
  • Bring a 60-second business presentation for the group – be sure to mention who invited you.
  • There will be 2 passes around the room for giving business presentations. The first pass is for members of the chapter and any substitutes. The 2nd pass is when visitors have an opportunity to stand up and give their 60-second presentation.



Plenty of parking in the lot.
