Meet-Ups Your Way!

What is a Meet-Up?

Meet-ups are free opportunities for you to “meet-up” with other business owners in our community. We invite all to share ideas, updates, and ask your questions.

The Goal?

To help you build connections, while also building potential collaboration and opportunities.

We are offering 5 meet-up formats to help you build your connections and grow your collaboration opportunities. Each meet-up is offered on a different day at a different time, allowing you to flex your connection muscle and “meet-up” at the time that works with your schedule.

Join one or all, we just hope you want to “meet-up” with us!
