Networking is a big piece of what makes things happen within The Gathering locally.  Real and long-term value is added when we connect men to men, and quality people to quality people.  Three good partners for local networking are:

  • The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce:
    • Our local Chamber is a great resource and offers many different offerings to our community.
  • Fellowship Business Network:
    • 4-6 yearly, free, after-work events are held at local businesses.  These events are open to all. 
  • Clark State:
    • Bi-monthly, FastBreak breakfasts on Tuesday mornings. These usually last just over an hour.  Hear a good speaker and enjoy a good breakfast, all for $10.
