Summer is in full swing, and we are all trying to balance vacations, summer camps, work and more. Many believe that business slows down during this time of the year, but it doesn’t have to for you!

Will Smith, the actor, was asked once what was the secret to his success. He answered ” I was working while everyone else was sleeping”. Summertime is a great chance to get ahead of your competition.

The ROMG Chamber wants to help you succeed. We have launched our new member-only benefit, Masterminds. We have re-launched our monthly Lunch & Learn networking events as well as  expanded our Young Professionals networking opportunities. We have offered a special women-in-business educational program as well as technology education series. We are here for you. Now it’s your turn to take advantage of all of these exclusive ROMG Chamber benefits.

We have two events this week! Register now and come on out and learn while meeting new people. Don’t let the summer business myth of inactivity slow you down.
