There are five Business Before Hours dates open for 2020: Jan 23, July 23, Sept 24, Nov 19, and Dec 17.
Before signing up to host a Business Before Hours in 2020, here are some things to consider:
**The hosting fee for a Business Before Hours is $100. This is non-refundable, even if there’s a cancellation. The hosting fee is due within a week of your agreement to host (ex. If you call the Chamber office on Aug. 6 saying you want to host, your payment is due Aug. 13).
* Is your business big enough to hold 20-40 people comfortably?
* Do you have enough parking spaces for 20-40 people?
* Each host provides food and beverages, and at least two prizes.
* If you hosted a BBH/BAH in 2019, you will need to wait a year. This ensures we
are going to different places each year.
If your company is interested in hosting on one of these dates, call the Chamber office at (217) 222-7980. As a host, your business/organization will be promoted throughout the year on our one-sheet listing all the events for 2020 and on our website. We will also promote your organization the week of the event in our weekly e-newsletter and on our Facebook page. Thank you for your desire to host a Business Before Hours in 2020! We can’t wait to visit your business/organization!
