Jan 30   Never Eat Lunch Alone Chamber Luncheon - Miramar
The Chamber is starting a new networking lunch program for our members.  The concept is from author Keith Ferrazi and his book "Never Eat Alone."  Twice each month the Chamber will hold these lunch meetings for ten members that register.    You will be responsible to pay for your own lunch at the restaurant, and yes you must order lunch.  During the lunch, participants will be able to network and also ask questions about how the Chamber can be of assistance to your individual business.  The goal is to help you our member build stronger relationships with others.

This is an opportunity to meet other business people in a way that is different from any networking opportunity you may have experienced. Instead of focusing on collecting and passing out cards, it’s about connecting with other business people in a relaxed setting, and forging professional relationships in a personal way.

If you register and do not show up to the luncheon, you will not be able to register for upcoming "Never Eat Lunch Alone" Lunches for three months.
