Thursday, March 19, 2020School & Business

Partner in Education Luncheon

This year marks our 35th annual luncheon to bring together students, teachers, principals and business representatives in celebration of the MOV Chamber's Partner in Education program. 

 

Each school’s Business Partner is asked to help offset the cost of the luncheon so that 2 students, 2 school representatives and 2 business representatives attend on behalf of each partnership.

 

If your business is one of several partners for the same school, I recommend that you connect with one another and the principal (or the school's partner in education liaison) to decide how many attendees you want to sponsor or other special reservation instructions. There is a section on the form to jot those instructions or give me a call to chat. Once I receive the business partner RSVPs, I then follow up with the principals with an exact count so that tables are set up correctly and things flow smoothly on the day of the event. 

 

On-line registration will go live first week of February. Check back here for registration link. Please call the Chamber office at 304.422.3588 with any questions.

 

Payment is appreciated prior to the event either via credit card or check.

  

When:
Thursday, March 19, 2020 11:30 AM thru 01:30 PM
