CAN is a morning networking meeting group called “CAN” Chamber Alliance Network. This group of motivated professionals are dedicated to getting to know local businesses and their goods and services in order to refer them customers.
This group supports the Chamber’s efforts to promote our “Shop Local, Dine Local, Hire Local” campaign to improve the local economy in the Windham Region. Each meeting consists of an education moment given by a chamber member, followed by a round table of each guest speaking about their business & ending with testimonials from any Chamber members who used other local services and are pleased with the results. Take advantage of what this group has to offer. Meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday morning via Zoom. Come mingle, network and get to know what other local members are doing. Cost is FREE, all we suggest is to bring business cards. You will not regret checking out this networking group.
This event is free to current chamber members and those interested in joining the chamber.
Please contact us if you would like to visit as a guest.
