Networking Mixers and Learning Workshops – join us at these valuable events

We organize monthly networking mixers that are hosted at one of our member businesses. They take place on the third Tuesday of each month from 5:00 to 7:00 PM and are a great way to connect with other members.

We have started organizing quarterly morning mixers on the Westshore and quarterly evening mixers on the Saanich Peninsula.

Thanks to Jack Adamson of CrackerJackFlash for creating this video of our epic mixer with Prince of Whales in July 2019.
