On June 22, Larchmont professionals gathered at Tequila Sunrise for the first of what they hope will be a regular Larchmont Chamber of Commerce feature: an opportunity to share business cards and leads, meet and mingle, and, most of all, to be supportive of each other.
“There are a lot of professional businesses in Larchmont without storefronts that people just don’t know about,” said Jill Kristal, Ph.D., president of Transitional Learning Curves, which helps individuals and families through the challenges of relocation. “Bringing professionals together for regular networking, the Chamber can play an important role in publicizing what we do and creating new opportunities for the people who work and live in the village.”
“When most people think of Larchmont’s business community they think about the stores along the Palmer and Post Road corridors,” said Citibank’s Jeff Rosenberg, president of the Chamber. “They don’t realize how many people with valuable skills and talents are working in the village. We hope to make the community more aware of what is available right here in Larchmont.”
The first professional networking session produced much good will and some good leads and discussions. A painter met a house stager, while others swapped suggestions on how to develop a web site.
The next networking session will be held July 13. For details on time and location, please contact the Larchmont Chamber of Commerce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Larchmont’s Chamber of Commerce, which began operations in January 2009, is dedicated to promoting the business and civic interests of Larchmont. It recently introduced a health insurance program for small businesses and sponsored a June sidewalk sale.
