   Upcoming Chamber Events & Opportunities   


Business After Hours @ Johnson Christian Village
Thursday, June 15th, 2017  5pm - 7pm
7102 State Road 158, Bedford, Indiana 47421

Join us for drinks, hor d'oeuvres, networking, and a $100 cash prize drawing at 6:00 pm. More chances to win the more times you come and the bigger the pot may get! 
Must be present to win, and if the winning name isn't present, we'll roll-over the cash prize to next month!  

In addition to getting a closer look at Johnson Christian Village and the opportunity to hear more about them, our Business After Hours event is an excellent networking opportunity for Bedford Area Chamber members. Bring your business cards and introduce yourself to other business-minded people in a laid back yet professional environment; represent your company and potentially uncover opportunities for new clients or even cross-promotion with another Chamber business.

The Business After Hours events are held monthly, and they're free and open to Chamber members and their guests. We look forward to seeing you there!
