Business After Hours
WHAT IS A BUSINESS AFTER HOURS?
A Business After Hours (BAH) is a business/social gathering of Chamber members and their guests
at your business or chosen location. As a sponsor, the BAH provides you with the opportunity to
showcase your business, and offers area business people a chance to get to gather informally, see old
friends, make new business contacts, and find out what our area businesses have to offer.
The BAH generally takes place at the end of the business day, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm or 5:00 – 7:00
