Upcoming Business After Hours at
Coming in a couple weeks is the Mecosta County Chamber of Commerce "Business After Hours" event and this month it will be held at Chemical Bank right here in downtown Big Rapids. When I first started my business I chatted with several banks looking for a "fit" and when I first met Karl Linebaugh at Chemical I was beyond impressed. Karl walks, talks and conducts business as a professional and when I say that I mean he is one of those people that has a professional aura that makes you want to be part of it. Needless to say I bank at Chemical now. Everyone there makes you feel like family even if it is your first visit. I have banked there for years without issue and am excited about Business After Hours being held there.
The Business After Hours and Rise and Shine events are just one benefit of our wonderful Chamber of Commerce. Business After Hours is a networking opportunity where members of the chamber and local business owners meet once a month to learn about each others businesses and gives them a chance to tell about how their business can help each other. For those who are early risers the Chamber holds Rise and Shine events which are always first thing in the morning so businesses can attend and still open shop on time. Both events are networking heaven for those who want to find business relationships. Every month I find out new things about local businesses I hadn't realized prior to coming. See you there.
