Have you signed up for Speed Networking on Feb. 14, 11:30 – 1:00 at Reinecker’s Party Center?  Wait until you see the NEW Reinecker’s!!!  It’s been redecorated since you were there last and it’s quite a change!!  Lunch will be served as you participate in networking madness!  This meeting is on our regularly scheduled monthly meeting date and is sponsored this month by new Nordonia Hills business Frame One Media.   Get to know 25+ different companies and they will get to know you. Bring at least 25 business cards, brochures, menus and flyers and prepare a 2 – 3-minute speech regarding your business (presentation time may be shorter depending on number of attendees).  You will be seated at a table of 6, give your presentation, listen to others and will move to another table and do it all over again!  Attendees without a RSVP (walk-ins) will be seated last.  Admission is $15 for NHCOC members and $20 for all others.  Grab your business cards and practice your elevator speech – that’s all you need to make 25 – 30 new contacts in one hour!  Email laura@nordoniahillschamber.org to RSVP please.
