On Monday, August 8, the Ohio University Inn and Conference Center hosted the August Business After Hours. Due to the heat, the event was held in their beautiful solarium room, and guests appreciated the air conditioning and private room.

The OU Inn treated attendees to selections off of their newest seasonal menu, including shrimp and grits, arancini (Italian rice balls), and some decadent brownies, and guests enjoyed the appetizers while making connections and having engaging conversations.

Here a few moments captured from the event:


About Business Before/After Hours

The Chamber organizes monthly business networking events, either before or after typical 9-5 business hours, in order to give our members the opportunity to network and build relationships with each other. These open-house style event allows members to showcase their business or organization and is an ideal opportunity to meet other area business people. While these events are focused on our members, they are open to the public and offer a great opportunity to learn more about the Athens Area Chamber.
