Annual Networking Social Events – BEACC’s Annual Banquet and Meeting is one of the most anticipated networking events in Blue Earth. It brings together many high profile business professionals and gives them an opportunity to meet and socialize with each other. In addition, the chamber holds a Progressive Power Lunch where chamber members enjoy each portion of a three course meal with a different group of chamber and business professionals. Participants change seats for each course giving them a chance to meet new people and create new contacts.
