'Old Fashioned' Networking Events
The Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce meets monthly and features special speakers/presentations, community announcements, and great opportunities to forge valuable connections in Kitsap's business communiy.
Chamber luncheons are our single largest monhtly meeting. Lunchiens are hosted at various locations in South Kitsap and attract an average of 60 people, and include new member introductions, a raffle for a local non-profit, dignitary introductions, guest speaker, and a tasty meal prepared by a local caterer and Chamber member. If youhave something to advertise or express to the community, our 'Please and Thank You' is the time to do so. Every quarter, we honor the Puget Sound Naval Hospital Sailors of the Quarter, and beginning in 2015, we will also recognize Outstanding Staff of the Quarter from the South Kitsap School District.
Luncheon sponsorships are also available as an opportuniyt to highlight your business at a luncheon.
Happy Hour/After Hours
On the third Thursday of every month (excluding October and December), the Chamber offers members the chance to network and socialize at an After Hours/Happy Hour event hosted by Chamber members throughout the Kitsap area. An informal drop-in event ot nework at no cost to attendees, tasty hors d'oeuvres, complimentary (non-alcoholic or alcoholic left to discretion of the host) drinks, and a great opportunity for the host to showcase their business, After Hours/Happy Hour is the place to be.
Newly redesigned for 2015, the Liason program will be replacing the Ambassador program as the 'meet and greeters' for the Chamber of Commerce. The Liason program is a great opportunity to explore new businesses in the area. Liasons also assist with hosting events, such as the Happy Hours and Grand Openings.
There is an application process for becoming a Chamber liason. If you are interested in becoming a liason, please contact the Chamber office.
