Pat Deere, of PLDeere Studios, and Tom Deere, of Deere Electric, Inc. are hosting a Business After Hours on Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 5 – 7 pm at 10650 Carson Hwy., Tecumseh, MI 49286.
This is NOT your typical business after hours. As a community service, Pat is creating a fused glass window for the much-anticipated Women’s and Children’s Center in Tecumseh. While networking with other BNI members, chamber members, and business owners … create your own fused glass piece that will be incorporated into the window being created for the center.
Enjoy some snacks from area restaurants, have a cup of coffee, and most of all … have some fun while bringing Hope Healing and Happiness to others. More information is on the Facebook Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/802298210118003/
Please RSVP now to Pat.PLDeere@gmail.com or call 517-667-0537.
Early Evening Networking
Business After Hours is a networking event held several times per year in partnership with sponsoring Chamber members. This event is designed to promote the sponsoring member business and help build connections with other business leaders. The sponsoring business opens its doors for Chamber members, offering a behind-the-scenes look at its operation. Usually occurring between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., Business After Hours facilitates night-time networking for those unable to get away for morning and afternoon events.
Business After Hours registration is not required, but is encouraged, so that our featured businesses have enough supplies, and there are enough refreshments to enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Business After Hours (BAH)?
BAH is a networking event held several times per year in partnership with sponsoring Chamber members. This event is designed to promote the sponsoring member business and help build connections with other business leaders. The sponsoring business opens its doors for Chamber members after normal business hours, offering a behind-the-scenes look at its operation.
When are BAH events held?
Usually occurring between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., BAH events facilitate night-time networking for those unable to get away for morning and afternoon events. Some events may start at 5:30 p.m. or last a little later than 7:00 p.m., but they will all fall within that early evening time-frame.
What days are BAH events held on?
Most BAH events will be held on the second Tuesday of the month, beginning in April 2015. They may also be held on other dates if the sponsoring member has a special event or anniversary they wish to celebrate. These special events will generally be in addition to the monthly BAH program.
What does it cost to attend BAH?
BAH events are free networking events sponsored by the host business. Unless otherwise noted, all BAH events are available exclusively to Chamber Members, their employees and spouses.
What are the requirements to host a BAH event at my business?
There are very few requirements to be a BAH host business: You must be a Chamber Member in good standing, you must have a facility with standing room for at least 20 people, and you must provide the refreshments for the evening. Months are available on a first-come-first-served basis, and can be reserved up to a year in advance.
What kind of refreshments will I need to serve?
Refreshments served are your choice – anything from cheese and crackers to a fully catered buffet has been done in the past. Restaurant members with a liquor license may also operate a cash bar during BAH events. (It is always a good idea to at least have some coffee and water available for thirsty guests!)
