Take part in this educational networking event which includes audience introductions, lunch, a presentation, time for questions, networking, and a business card exchange.

spring 2021 CLASSES

Save your seat today! All classes will be held in-person at the Chamber office (subject to change; if needed, we will meet via Zoom.)

The St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce will follow guidelines recommended by the state of Minnesota and the CDC when presenting events. Please be aware event locations may change suddenly. At this time, we are working on securing an event location that would allow us to safely hold each class in-person.

At all in-person events, the following rules must be followed by attendees:

  1. Face-coverings must be worn at all times (except when seated)
  2. Social distancing of 6 feet or more must be maintained at all times
  3. Stay home if you are feeling any sickness symptoms
  4. At events, wash your hands and areas you touch frequently (sanitizer will always be provided)

Past business training programs include:
  • Social Media Game-Changers
  • Developing a Culture of Innovation and Employee Engagement
  • Everything You Want To Know About Somalis, But Are Afraid To Ask
  • Effectively Managing Today’s Cross-Generational Workforce
  • Perfectionism and Productivity

Join us the first Wednesday of **every month in the Coldspring Conference Room, 1411 W. St. Germain Street, Suite 101, from 12 - 1 p.m. for lunch and a presentation. The cost is $20 for members and $30 for the general public, which includes lunch.

Because we order lunch for all attendees, cancellations must be received at least 48 hours prior to the session or payment will be expected. 

**Spring program runs February - June & the fall program runs September - January. We are on break and will not put on a Lunchtime Learning class in July and August.
