When you think B2C or B2B, think AACC!
The Solar Eclipse wasn't the only thing shaking things up in August! It was another productive month for the Assyrian American Chamber of Commerce beaming with meetings, events, and updates. Our efforts have continued, and our business members have been seeing the results just by participating.
August 10th Board and Committee Meeting
The board and committee of the AACC met on August 10th to discuss the future of the Assyrian American Chamber of Commerce. Topics of discussion included how we could continue to drive value towards our business members, and the community. We will focus on building a more streamlined website aimed to showcase YOUR business, continue social media stream marketing, and providing value added services to help drive down the cost of doing business!

August 24th MEGA CONNECT!
Over 100 businesses present!
Talk about a great turnout! The MEGA Connect, hosted by the Skokie Chamber of Commerce, included the Assyrian American Chamber of Commerce, and 13 other chambers and their members. The breakfast networking event allowed a round robin style networking platform.
This allowed our members to meet and greet with multiple geographically distributed businesses. The AACC will continue our participation in these styles of events to provide a wider forum to showcase your business not typically offered in the past. Over 100 business owners were present at the event, which lasted for two hours at the Holiday INN in Skokie. The next MEGA Connect will be on October 17th, look for the registration form once the time gets closer!
