Morning Connections Has a New Name and Format!

Chamber Connections logoLast year's Morning Connections program was very popular and well attended, but based on your input, this year will see a few changes.

  • First, a new name — Chamber Connections!
  • Second, the venue will change for each meeting. This will give you an opportunity to see a variety of Chamber businesses when they host the event.
  • Third, not all meetings will be in the morning. There was a great deal of interest in having after-work Connections as well. Our first evening Connections is scheduled for March at 6:00 PM.
  • Fourth, make sure to check the date, as not all meetings will be on the same day of the month as in the past.

Chamber Connections has a great lineup of programs planned for this year on a variety of topics, designed to help our Brown County businesses succeed and prosper. Remember, you don't have to be a Chamber member to attend, everyone is welcome.


Buyer Beware!

Recently, Chamber members have reported an uptick in phone solicitors trying to sell them advertising on various products. A common tactic with these companies is to claim that a chamber of commerce or local government office is sponsoring or endorsing their product. If you are contacted by a sales company claiming the support of a local organization, contact that organization before making a purchase.

One Chamber member reported being contacted and harassed by a company called Totes to Go, while another member reported a company selling magnets and claiming the endorsement of the Chamber and local government offices. Be advised that they are not working with the Brown County Chamber of Commerce and do not give them your credit card information. Totes to Go is a subsidiary of Universal Adcom which operates several other advertising scams, including magnets and maps, across the country.

If you feel that you have been the victim of sales fraud you can file a consumer complaint with the Indiana Attorney General's Office or call 1.800.382.5516 and request a complaint form.
