Business After Hours
Networking is the number one reason businesses join the GBCC.
Our monthly networking events are an opportunity for members and potential new members to build strong business relationships in a friendly, yet professional environment. Business After Hours are held at a different member business each month, usually between 5pm – 7pm. For the holidays, the event is hosted by the North Shore Music Theatre in their main lobby. There is no charge for GBCC members, so grab your business cards and join us!
Business Educational Seminars
The GBCC offers low or no-cost monthly business seminars to address your most urgent business needs. Past topics include our social media series covering Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Other seminars include tips for marketing, web design, how to hire and fire, conflict resolution in the workplace, negotiating the sale, to name a few.
Legislative & Economic Development Breakfasts
The GBCC Legislative Breakfast & Economic Development Series are our premier legislative and political forums. Each breakfast unites compelling, well-known speakers and state legislators that discuss current and future issues and initiatives that affect your business. The series strikes a balance between public policy and intriguing dialogue while presenting the opportunity to develop strong relationships with legislators and public officials.

Pre-pandemic, I was a GBCC member with another business and recently rejoined under a new business. Leslie had always gone out of her way to introduce me to other members. Since joining a few months ago, I’ve secured real business from several members! Attending their large and smaller events has been a proven opportunity to expand my client base!
