Monthly Networking Mixers
Held the 4th Thursday of each month, January through October, from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. There is no mixer in November, instead a "Holiday Mixer" is held in December. Cost is $10.00 per member and $15.00 for non-members. Each mixer is held at a different venue each month to showcase that member's facilties/services. Twice a year we hold a "food drive" mixer to benefit the Sedona Community Food Bank and we ask that each attendee bring at least 3 non-perishable items in lieu of the entry fee. Also twice a year, mixers are held tradeshow style. This allows our members the opportunity to purchase an exhibition table and promote their products and services to potential new customers. Each mixer attracts between 175 - 250 attendees. Click here to view schedule.
