It may be hot outside, but October will be here before you know it. 

Chamber Network Night is Northwest Indiana's premier business-to-business networking event.  With an attendance of 1,000 business professionals and over 150 exhibitors, you don't want to be left out.

This year's event will be on Thursday, October 13, at the Porter County Expo Center.  Click here to get more information or to register for your booth.
The Need for Speed 
Speed Networking is returning on Tuesday, August 9.

This popular event, which is set up like speed dating, can generate more leads for you in an hour and a half than some get in a month.

Golfing at its Best
This past Monday, the Valpo Chamber hosted its annual golf outing at the Valparaiso Country Club.

Golfers were treated to wonderful weather, great food, great games and lots of fun.

Allegius Credit Union took the top prize as best foursome, with Indiana Furniture and Mattress coming in second.

Thank you to the many sponsors and volunteers who made this event possible.  We are already looking forward to 2017's outing on Monday, June 26, 2017.
Building Improvements
In an ongoing effort to continue to improve our building, the Board of Directors decided to replace the carpeting in the upstairs Odd Fellows Room.  This large conference room hosts many events and meetings throughout the year, including the recently held New Member Welcome. If you are interested in using this room, or any of our other conference rooms, call the Chamber Office at 219-462-1105.
This month's business to spotlight is
Century Pipe & Supply Co., Inc.
Century Pipe joined the Valpo Chamber in 1981 and have been working to fulfill Northern & Central Indiana's plumbing and HVAC needs since 1980.  They
strive to provide a wide range of quality products at competitive wholesale prices, and to support their product lines by offering the best in customer service.  Their goal is to provide personal, professional customer service and to work closely with each of their customers, helping them achieve success in all of their projects.  Century Pipe & Supply promises to be attentive to your needs and to do all they can to meet each and every request.  

To learn more about Century Pipe & Supply Co., Inc., visit their website at or view their show room at 703 Morthland Dr.

Shine a Light on Your Business

Throughout the year, the Valpo Chamber offers several opportunities to advertise your business.  The quarterly Valparaiso Magazine, the annual Membership Directory and Resource Guide, and the website, are all great ways to give an added boost to your marketing plan.  
In addition,  the Member 2 Member Email Blast is a quick and easy way to advertise. With only three booked each month, these emails sell out quickly and are booking into 2017 already.
For more information about any of these ad opportunities, call Danielle at 219-462-1105 or email her here.

Are you a business owner that is current or retired military? Does your organization work to benefit military and their families? Or do you employ veterans?

The chamber is looking for various types of businesses that have an affiliation with our armed forces, for a special feature in our Fall Valparaiso Magazine. Please contact us at [email protected] to tell us about it.

We look forward to hearing from you.
