What is a "connection event?" It's any meeting of business members where the goal is to develop your network or build upon existing relationships. The Salem Chamber has a variety of open and niche programs to meet your business needs or personal preferences. Browse the events below, or view them all on our calendar.
Forum Speaker Series
Timely, entertaining and provocative, the Forums feature presentations by well-known, respected - and sometimes controversial - business and community leaders. The Chamber’s monthly forum luncheon runs October through May and is held on the second Monday of the month, unless otherwise noted on schedule, from 11:45am to 1:15pm. Forum speakers are organized by the Chamber’s Past Presidents Committee. Different business members sponsor each month’s program.
Chamber Members: Forum Season Tickets are now available for 2012-13!

Connect for Lunch
One Good Connection Is Worth 1,000 Business Cards
When you enroll in your Chamber's Connect 4 Lunch program, you will be invited each week to have lunch with three other business people. For a nominal fee — just a little more than what you'd leave for a tip — you can make up to 100 new personal connections over the course of a year: real connections that can lead to real results for your business.
