Rapid City Chamber of Commerce

Networking's Not Natural


The Ambassador Committee of the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce are offering a cure for your networking anxieties.  The Networking’s Not Natural mission is to improve individual networking skills while building community collaboration.  We realize that networking does not come naturally and can be uncomfortable for many, especially those new to an area or industry. 

A quarterly class will be offered to learn the Do's and Dont's of successful networking. Attendees will have an opportunity to practice these skills in a supportive environment.  This tool is available to the novice or seasoned alike. Please contact the Chamber office for location at 343-1744.

Education will continue with monthly tips routed via Facebook and in the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce Investment Report.  Cost is $10 for Chamber Members, and $20 for Future Chamber Members. Mark your calendars for one of the following dates and register using the link below.  Thank you to Ketel Thorstenson as our event sponsor!
