The chamber’s breakfast series averaged over 150 attendees each month during its last three seasons. The PIP series is bringing top notch speakers to the community and providing high level networking opportunities.

Sponsors have the exclusive marketing rights to the banquet room and provide a five minute sponsor profile on their company. Partner agencies will share updates with the local business leaders and address issues of concern for the entire region.

The Leadership Rowan Class will start their day at the breakfast and then venture out for each day’s session focused on a different aspect of the community.
