Business After Hours

The social event you don’t want to miss!

Our Business After Hours event offers members, future members, customers, and area professionals the chance to network in an engaging and fun unique environment. 

These events are held in a variety of venues across Southwest Washington, on the second Tuesday of each month, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Attendance averages 200-400 people for networking and socializing. Participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

The relaxed, social atmosphere allows you the opportunity to meet top business leaders, mingle, and network with your peers to forge powerful partnerships, while enjoying cocktails and delicious appetizers.

"The GVC team put together an amazing event last night – it was good to see a few familiar faces and many faces I’d never seen before; a good sign of things to come. It was also just good honest fun, which is a refreshing change of pace. The Chamber has tremendous momentum this year and I’m excited for what is ahead."- Max Ault, LSW Architects
