CHAMBER CONNECTION: Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce upcoming events centered on continual learning


The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce firmly believes in continuous learning, the exploration of sharing that knowledge with others, and the places it will take you. That is why the CDCC wants to notify their members of three upcoming events that further their goal of learning, informing, and growing in their professional and personal experiences.

On Thursday, March 2, from 8:30 – 10 a.m., join the CDCC for their free monthly business development session – Kent County Open for Business (KOB). This event is held at Kent County Levy Court, Room 220, (555 Bay Road, Dover). This is your one-stop shop for obtaining knowledge about how to conduct, create, and collaborate in the business professional world of central Delaware. Whether you’re at the very beginning of your business journey, or have been working for a few years, KOB is the place you should be. Talk face to face with experts from 19 different organizations and agencies who are passionate about helping you and your business support the community. The Downtown Dover Partnership, Kent Economic Partnership, Inc., SCORE Delaware, and U.S. Small Business Administration are just some the of the agencies represented at this event. Take advantage of this free session, and feel free to share the news with anyone who could benefit.

After KOB, see what’s brewing with the CDCC by attending Coffee Coaching on March 8 from 8-9 a.m. via zoom. This month’s educational presentation is titled “What the Department of Labor Division of Employment & Training Can Do for You.” Carly Horton and Chip Riddleberger will be virtually present to present and discuss JobLink, benefits to employers, and their program “Elevate Delaware” to increase employee retention and growth. This conversation will be extremely valuable to employers, large or small, and employees alike because both work hand-in-hand to make our state great. This is a free member benefit for CDCC members.
