Your Randolph Chamber of Commerce has put together a virtual learning series dedicated to providing our business community with information they can use NOW. We’ve pulled in business experts from a variety of fields to share their tips, ideas, and perspectives with you. All learning sessions are focused on helping your business not only survive this pandemic, but be set up to thrive despite it.
We decided to structure these like our in-person Lunch & Learns; we want to provide learning and value while also allowing for discussion and some networking. These will be offered every other week. The topics and dates are below. Hope to see you!
Cost: We’ve waived fees!
IF you are able to pay, we invite you to do so as it goes directly to help the Chamber continue to be a resource for our community.
- $10 if you can pay.
