Natomas Chamber Offers Online Networking

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Natomas Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Happy Neighborhood Project to offer weekly online networking events.

The regional online events are meant to help participants build new business relationships, get referrals, and share ideas about ways to weather unstable market conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is a hard and difficult time for most of our communities and our chamber members,” said chamber 1st Vice President Jon Lindo. “Our chamber members are businesses and organizations hit hard by the current circumstances. For most members, business has halted to a stand still.”

After hearing about an online networking event the Happy Neighborhood Project was holding on a weekly basis, Lindo reached out to project founder and “Chief Happiness Officer” Edwin Edebiri.

The  Happy Neighborhood Project promotes good customer service and positive work environments which result in happier customers. The Davis-based project is creating a global database of “Happy Businesses” by neighborhood or zip code.

“We needed to find ways to get our members connected via online whether it be a virtual ‘Lunch & Learn’ on how to use Zoom or to partner up with the Happy Neighborhood Project weekly networking event,” Lindo added. “…the Natomas Chamber of Commerce’s goal is to support our members and our local business community. Together we’ll endure this storm.”

Online networking events for Northern California businesses are held 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. each Tuesday and Friday. Participants who preregister will be given priority to attend due to capacity limits for the events.

“This is a great way to network every week,” said Lindo.
