One of the Chamber’s many networking opportunities occurs almost every Friday morning at 8:00 am. The events are hosted by and at a different business each week bringing dozens of business and city leaders together. Our Chamber Ambassadors go the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome with a special focus on introducing people who are new to the group to get them started on their relationship-building journey.

Our weekly networking event is a high energy gathering where you have a chance to promote your business and meet like-minded professionals. It’s a great way to find the products and services you need while you share what you have to offer with the Lake Oswego business community.

Bring plenty of business cards and be ready to mingle with 30 or more business folk.

Those who aren’t Chamber members are welcome to attend two Networking events to get a feel for the Chamber’s work. First-timers get a special opportunity to introduce themselves to the group.

If you’re tired of stuffy and boring networking events, check us out. We’ll help you make some great connections and we promise you’ll have a good time in the process, while learning about what other business owners are working on.

Top-notch refreshments are provided by each week’s host and there’s always something special to win in the business card drawing and raffle.

The events are lively and entertaining and provide a great way to “jump start” a Friday morning, making it easier to build relationships that at some point may turn into business customers, suppliers or important contacts.

New Business Meet & Greets

The Chamber hosts monthly* “meet and greet” events to welcome new business license holders to the Lake Oswego business community. These free, informal gatherings give new business owners a chance to meet others, as well as make some contacts that may help them grow. You’ll be introduced to established business leaders as well as learn more about City government, how it works, and how it can work for you. If you’re a new business and have not received an invitation to attend one of these events, see the “Events” page for upcoming meet & greets and registration details or email matt@lake-oswego.com for more information.

*Note – these events are suspended for the Holidays, but will begin again early next year.
