2017 Business After Hours pre-pay plan  now available

The admission fee for each Chamber Business After Hours event in 2017 will remain $5 per person, and it’s perfectly OK to “pay as you go.”

“But we also offer a pre-registration plan, whereby members can pay $50 in advance to cover the full year,” said Julie Naegelen.  “With 14 dates on the 2017 Business After Hours calendar, it’s a $20 savings or like getting in for free…four times.

“Many of our members have found that this pre-pay option is a convenience as well as a good deal,” she said.  “Now, you can make the transaction via credit card online HERE.  We also accept cash and checks.  For more information, call the Chamber at 252-726-6350 or stop in at 801 Arendell St., Morehead City.
