February Business After HoursIf you missed last night's Business After Hours you missed out on a great time! We would like to thank Cannoli's Restaurant, Tom Freesmeier and staff for hosting our February event for the 4th year in a row.

Congratulations to Tim Lee, the winner of the Cannoli's gift certificate in our business card drawing. Our March Business After Hours will be held at DeLeo's Deli & Cafe on 3/18/14. Mark you calendars and join us for a great time.
A Testimonial from One of our Members
"I wanted to take a few moments to express the amazing privilege I have had being a part of the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce. During the short time that I have been a member here I have been fortunate to receive a great amount of support and excellent networking opportunities. This Chamber provides multiple avenues for someone to build incredible relationships with business owners and the opportunity to attend a variety of strong and beneficial events.
"I have been able to grow my network for Charter Business in large part to the members of this Chamber. I am currently taking part in Leads Group 1 which has been a wonderful experience and I encourage anyone who is not investing their time in this group to participate. There are other many other opportunities for someone to be involved with this Chamber from lunch sponsorships, to ribbon cutting ceremonies and even larger events like the Golf Tournament and Night of the Stars.
"Our Chamber stands behinds its members, and provides a meaningful experience to work within the community and with each other. The Shop Chamber First Campaign is an incredible display of why this Chamber can reap so many benefits. Thanks again for allowing me to join this community and family and I look forward to more success!"
Chris Quinones, Charter Business Account Executive

Jason Haney, Tanya Smith and the entire staff made our members and guests feel so welcome. If you weren't there you sure missed a wonderful event.
