Mission Chamber of Commerce: After Hours Mixer

+The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce is hosting their monthly After Hours Mixer tonight at 5:30 at Sharyland Wine & Spirits. The mixer is a an opportunity for both Chamber members and non-members to meet and network.

Why would you attend something like this? Typically, it is difficult to find a business owner or decision maker for a business. You have to deal with a gatekeeper who will "pass on" your pitch to the boss. At the mixers, the boss is there. You have an opportunity to meet the very people you work so hard to meet.

You can find more details about the event on Facebook.
