• Chamber Calendar of Events for 2018

    We have been asked to help circulate a brief survey on Western Mass residents utilization of social media. The hope is to achieve a broad response across age, gender, location, and interests to help us understand how people in Western Mass use social media. We would appreciate your help in sharing this survey with your networks.

    The more robust we share and encourage people to take the survey, the more meaningful the results! The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and participants will be eligible to win an iPad PRO as a thank you for taking the time to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/wmasssocial

The event sponsors represent a wide range of industries and provide a great opportunity to uncover new business prospects and gather information on products and services your company needs. By attending, you can build your business network and gain valuable information, for less than the cost of a business lunch. $10 for members or $15 for non-members.

It is a relationship building experience held in a relaxed setting that benefits you and your company through added contacts and resources. Stay for 20 minutes or enjoy the full two hours.
