West End Ciderhouse
Join the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce as we present our inaugural Quarterly Business After Hours Event!
Our first Business After Hours (BAH) of 2023 will consist of networking, learning, discussion, and fun. West End Ciderhouse will be hosting the event, with Ciro providing complimentary appetizers and Elevate Balloon Co. providing a selfie backdrop and door prize. We will also have a panelist discussion featuring marketing professionals from Hocking Valley Bank, Ohio University, and Stuart’s Opera House.
The Athens Area Chamber is so excited to show off our new programming with the community that our inaugural Business After Hours event will be free and open to the public to attend. Please note that though we encourage participants to register ahead of time, you are still welcome to stop in on the day of the event even if you didn’t register beforehand.
We will be providing one drink ticket for the first 25 Chamber members who register for the event.
This is an open-house style event – feel free to come when you can for as long as you can.
However, in order to help everyone better plan their after hours attendance and so that we can fit everything in, we will do our best to stick closely to the following agenda.
March 22nd BAH Schedule
5:00 – 5:30pm – Registration and networking

6:00pm – 7:00pm – Networking
PANEL DISCUSSION : DIGITAL MARKETING
Over the past few months we’ve heard from many of our members seeking help and advice on marketing their businesses online, so the first theme of our quarterly Business After Hours is Digital Marketing. Through listening to our panelists and engaging in discussions, we hope to help our members learn how to more effectively market themselves through social media and other digital marketing avenues.
We have assembled a panel of marketing experts from member businesses who have impressive social media and digital marketing presence to share some advice and guidance, including Andrea Lewis, Director of Student Media at Ohio University; Polly Sumney, Executive Vice President and CCO at Hocking Valley Bank; and Dylan Telerski, Marketing & Public Relations Director at Stuart’s Opera House.
And to help us all create some fun images from the event to post on our social media, Elevate Balloon Co. will be showcasing their services by providing a selfie backdrop as well as a door prize for one lucky attendee!
