Meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month from 8:30 to 9:30 am. Meetings are held at Redbud Commons - 602 Redbud Rd. Pickerington, OH 43147.
Wednesday Connects is open to all Chamber members and does not have any industry limitations. You get to network as you normally would during other Chamber events, but with a more detailed focus.
Each meeting opens with a Chamber update, followed by a round-robin of participants sharing their 45-second elevator pitch, including what sets them apart and what they’re looking for in a referral. Afterwards, there is time for members to give a shout-out to another member who provided them a referral, partnered with, or did an excellent job for them. The meeting concludes with a 10-Minute Topic where a member introduces a subject of interest to small businesses and includes discussion. Any remaining time is open networking time.
