Come out to network and enjoy lunch while supporting our restaurants. Register your spot here!

The Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Council spearheads this networking series to allow participants to experience the many fantastic offerings of our area while connecting with members of our business community. Each month a new restaurant will be featured!

The event is FREE to attend. Guests will pay for lunch on their own. However, registration is required for us to communicate with the restaurant owner on how many people to expect. Some events may have limited seats available.

To respect the time and effort of the restaurant staff, we ask that all attendees honor their registrations. Should you need to miss the event, a 24-hour notification must be given, it allows for the seat to be filled and for us to alert the restaurant of headcount changes.
