Member Benefits

Business-After-Hours Mixers

After-Hours Mixers are held monthly at different member businesses from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., where members can meet, exchange business cards, and talk business in a relaxed and informal setting.

Host a mixer! If you have the type of business that would benefit from being shown off to fellow members and their guests, you can host a mixer. This gives you the opporunity to bring members into your location, acquaint them with your products or services, and generate networking and word-of-mouth advertising. As the host, you will be asked to give a brief personal welcome and commercial for your company. If you are interested in hosting a mixer contact the Chamber at 818-846-3111 or info@burbankchamber.org.
