2017 Networking Events



 Business After Hours - 2nd Tuesday 5:30 pm 

Business After Hours is traditionally the second Tuesday of every month from 5:30pm-7pm. Enjoy food, beverages, and raffle prizes, and meet your neighbors in the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce business community. There are also opportunities for our Members to host an event, and showcase their business and the services they offer.  Often times, our gatherings turn into all-out adventures, like our BAH meeting at Mystified Escape Rooms in February, or Naskart Racing scheduled for October of this year. Bring raffle items and get a coupon that allows you free entry into the next Business After Hours meeting. Entry fee at the door is $10 for GMCC members and $20 for guests, and there is an option for invoicing. Do you attend all of our events? Purchase a Yearly Passport and take advantage of the savings.
