If you have not already heard, the 2017 Blue Ridge BBQ Festival has been cancelled , crazy as it seems.  But we are trying to bring it back for 2018!   While we are working on that, we are starting some new programs and opportunities to make the most of your membership with the Chamber.   The Chamber  will be hosting Women In Business, a one-hour  coffee house networking get together for us girls,  This will take place 2x a month with a morning session and a noon session in our local great coffee shops.  We are also planning a Member Benefit Orientation,  which will be held quarterly, so new and old members can  learn about all the benefits of  membership.   Then, we have a brand new sponsorship program, to give  our members more opportunities to promote their businesses in our community at all Chamber functions and events!  Watch your newsletters for details!
