Breakwater to host monthly Chamber lunch

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce has a new program with The Breakwater Restaurant.

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a unique new monthly networking program in co-operation with The Breakwater Restaurant at the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa.

“We are always thrilled when our member businesses come to us with good ideas, so we were intrigued when Cristina Baldini, director of sales and marketing at the Kingfisher, contacted us to talk about hosting a program called ‘Six for Lunch’.”

“I had participated in a similar program with the Victoria Chamber when I lived and worked in Victoria,” Baldini said. “That program was a great success, so I wanted to do something similar in the Comox Valley. Not only is it a great way for us to introduce the new restaurant to Chamber members, it is how we can demonstrate our support and appreciation of all that the Chamber and its members do for this community.”

“We are calling ‘Six for Lunch’ the ultimate networking experience,” adds Chamber president and CEO, Dianne Hawkins. “It is designed to provide Chamber members with an opportunity for an in-depth networking experience in a small group environment. This format will enable six chamber members each month, from March until December, to meet other chamber members to discuss current issues and talk about their respective businesses, as well as exchange insight and expertise over a delicious lunch. Basically, we make the reservations, and six Chamber members make new connections.”

The first Six 4 Lunch meeting will is March 5. Cost is $20 per person (+HST) and will cover lunch, coffee or tea and gratuities. Six 4 Lunch is a ‘Members Only’ benefit of belonging and is being launched during March, which is Member Appreciation Month at the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce.

For more information call 250-334-3234 or visit the News and Events section of the Chamber’s website, www.ComoxValleyChamber.com.
