Business After Hours

Business After Hours is held the third Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:30 PM, and is hosted by a different Chamber member each month. There is no charge to attend Business After Hours; however, you must be a member of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce in order to attend.

This is our primary monthly networking function that typically draws 75-80+ Chamber members per event. It is a great way to meet and network with a diverse group of people in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

Hosting a Business After Hours is a great way to promote your business to fellow Chamber members! The host is responsible for the following:

  • Location and Parking
  • Appetizers
  • Beer & Wine
  • Soft drinks & water
  • Door prizes: optional

The Chamber of Commerce staff and volunteers handle promoting the event and checking guests in!
