Jan. 26, 2015. If you are a member, or a prospective member, of the Avery County Chamber of Commerce, you are invited to join the Avery Chamber staff for the annual Open House, to be held on Thursday, Jan. 29, from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Avery County Chamber Office.
This exciting event will serve as yet another networking event hosted by the chamber, where members and prospective members will get a chance to mingle with other local business owners and meet and greet the staff members at the Chamber of Commerce office. Attendees can enjoy hors d’oeuvres courtesy of local businesses as well as door prizes donated by local business owners.
“This is our sixth annual open house,” said Executive Director Melynda Pepple. “It is an open house and networking event where we will have food, donations and music. Normally we have around 100 people, so that is what we are expecting this year.”
Attendees do not need to RSVP to attend the event.
Those who might wish to join the chamber of commerce, or renew their membership with the chamber, may receive a ten percent discount if membership is renewed before Feb. 14.
“If someone wants to become a new member, they can bring their business information and business card with them to the event,” Pepple said. “If they want to go ahead and sign up that evening, we can go ahead and take care of a lot of the business stuff before they leave.”
