Networking brings together potential new members, employers, and referrals and connects them with current members in a casual environment set in local Andersonville hangouts. Each month the Chamber provides light bites and host a Spotlight Professional. Each Spotlight Professional is a chamber member that offers something unique and dynamic to offer and will be giving a brief presentation for attendees. Then open networking continues afterwards.
