Monthly Networking Luncheons

Our monthly luncheons offer the business community an opportunity to network and offer each other the ‘inside line’ on local business affairs. Stay in touch with other business leaders, entrepreneurs and new businesses and stay informed about current Chamber activities and benefits. Keynote Speakers include local and visiting community, business, political and thought leaders with ideas and information to inspire and help Nanaimo businesses. New member introductions, report from the CEO on events and activities, and a great buffet round out the day.

  • 2nd Wednesday of each month (some exceptions – check event schedule for any updates).
  • Begin at 11:30 and end at 1:00. Order your tickets online at the events calendar on the home page.
  • Hot buffet with 2 choices of entree, salads, desserts, etc – $35.70 (inc. gst)
  • Standing reservations encouraged to ensure your seat is always available.

Luncheon Sponsorships (except Christmas) are $500. Contact Brett Watts, Sales and Marketing Manager at 250-756-1191 ext 5 or
