CEO on the Go!
Getting Out Into Our Community
The Kerrville Area Chamber of Commerce looks to provide networking opportunities and help our members promote their businesses throughout the community.
In August 2021, we launched a new program called CEO on the Go! How it will work is, serval times a month, our President/CEO will be coming to work remotely at our member businesses for a few hours. To host a CEO on the Go event, businesses will need to provide access to WiFi and an area for my laptop. The Chamber will promote the event prior to me coming to your business. We will also do a Facebook live video to remind the community to stop by and visit us!
If your business wants to host one of these events, please email me at Brad@KerrvilleChamber.biz with dates and times that work best for you. I will then review my calendar and find out what works best for me! We are excited about the program and cannot wait to work with our members!
