Hosting a Chamber Business after Hours function allows your business to showcase its products, services and facilities to fellow members, prospective members and other guests.
Only financial members have the opportunity to host our monthly function. The event usually draws between 30 and 50 members and guests … all eager to find out more about what’s happening in the community and the Host’s business.
RMPCC BaH functions occur on the third Wednesday of each month from 5.30 pm until 7.00pm with refreshments and finger food provided by the host organisation. Business after Hours is free to all members and guests attending the event.
If you’re a member and you’d like to host an After Hours function please contact Charles Kilby or Helen Crouch via the chamber email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and details on availability.
