Attending the annual chamber open house could land you on the cover of the chamber guide
Three lucky chamber members attending the annual Chamber of Commerce open house at the Howell chamber will win a featured spot on the cover of the chamber’s annual membership guide. In addition, they will be featured on the inside of the guide.
There will also be a chance to win a dining gift certificate at Diamond’s Steak and Seafood in downtown Howell, or The Root, the White Lake eatery set to open its second location in the Howell Theater space next year.
The open house, set for 4:30-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, will also feature drinks, music, food, prize drawings and networking opportunities. There is no cost to attend.
“Stop by for tours of the building, get questions answered about membership or the chamber’s involvement in the community, enter to win some great prizes, meet the chamber staff and more,” said Pat Convery, president of the chamber.
Chamber of Commerce Month in Michigan recognizes chambers for the roles they play in their local communities, their work as advocates for business, and their dedication to the improvement of their communities.
The Howell chamber has four lines of business: advocacy, community improvement, member services and economic development. Formed in 1949, the chamber has grown from a small, strictly volunteer organization to a membership base of approximately 700, with a staff of seven.
“Since 1949, the Howell chamber has led Livingston County on business, economic and quality of life issues,” Convery said. “Today, our members and the community continue to support the chamber in its efforts to represent business interests throughout the area.”
In conjunction with the open house, the chamber is also hosting a Networking Up To Speed workshop from 3- 4:30 p.m. that day.
Chris Kostoff of Point B Living will talk about strategies for successful networking and making connections. His presentation will be followed by a preview of speed networking.
“The Howell chamber is one of the largest networking groups in the area, and we encourage business professionals to tap into these resources and connections,” said membership director Kim Esper. “Bring your business cards to share with the group and let us know who you’d like to meet.”
There is no cost to attend the workshop or the open house. To RSVP, contact the chamber at 517.546.3920 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
