Every Thursday, members have the opportunity to both attend and/or host a Chamber Coffee. The weekly program begins at 9:30 a.m. Members pay $100 to host a coffee (plus the cost of refreshments & door prizes), and we take care of the rest. Chamber coffees draw an average of 60 attendees, and are a great opportunity for you to exclusively showcase your business. Coffees are also LIVEstreamed to the Chamber's Facebook page & YouTube (average stream reaches 400+ in 7 days)
Members can host a Chamber Business After Hours event held at your business from 5-7 p.m. on a weeknight.

These events allow local individuals the chance to network with our state representatives and senators directly to hear updates and share concerns. Held 2-3 times during the spring legislative session, all Legislative Coffees are free to attend, and sponsored by Hutchinson Regional Medical Center.
