Meet people at multiple events each month such as luncheons, ribbon cuttings, special events, etc. Exchange business cards and information of who provides what goods and services.
The Red Oak Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a luncheon meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every month January through October. The November luncheon may be the third or fourth Wednesday depending when Thanksgiving falls. There is no luncheon in December.
A guest speaker provides insightful business information at each meeting. This event draws a large crowd and offers the opportunity to meet and network with other businesses and community leaders in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Luncheons are catered by one of our restaurant/caterer members. So reservations are required.
Any member may sponsor a luncheon. For the last three years the Luncheon Sponsorship has re-mained at only $150.00. For your sponsorship you get:
- The Luncheon sponsor is printed in the luncheon reminders, luncheon program, the front page of the chamber newsletter (at the end of the month) and the power point program at the next luncheon.
- The sponsor gets 3-5 minutes to speak at the luncheon.
- The sponsor also gets their own display table or place marketing material on the luncheon tables so that the members can see what the sponsor business does. (All other members marketing material must be on the share table.)
- New this year…full page ad in the Chamber newsletter of the month you sponsor.
The Program Sponsor is only $150.00 to print ad on the back of the luncheon program. The Program Sponsor will also receive recognition in luncheon announcements; monthly chamber newsletter and the luncheon powerpoint.
Members with reservations only pay $15; without reservations it is $18; and non-members $20.
