Contacts N' Coffee - April Edition!

Contacts N' Coffee - April Edition!

Since we have brought back the Contacts N' Coffee event, a good number of quality connections have been made. And, you know what, thanks to all of you who have participated, we have also learned quite a bit.


Our "Contacts N' Coffee" events are an excellent opportunity to meet Business Professionals as well as Civic and Community Leaders as a means of sharing with them what it is that you do and, importantly, what entities make great referrals for you. A more structured format, these events provide EVERYONE with an opportunity to shine!

This event is open to all Chamber Members, their guests and anyone else who may be interested in the Greater Northside Chamber of Commerce.

Our Featured Presenter will be Jason Cantu, Branch Manager of Smart Financial Credit Union, North Loop West. Learn more about the various products and services that Smart Financial is offering businesses and consumers of all types and sizes and, most importantly, how they can help YOU in your particular situation.

Also, get answers to such pertinent questions as "What is the difference between a "Bank" and a "Credit Union? :-)
