OCTOBER SOCIAL HOUR

Oct 3,2017 -     Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for the first BTMA Social Hour!

Twice a year we will forego our traditional luncheon meeting format in favor of an evening social hour.  This event is the perfect way to network with other business professionals while unwinding before heading home for the day.  Our first social is at the West Main Crafting Co. where they are graciously opening the doors one hour early just for us!  Anyone can come for the member rate of $25 so bring a friend!  Registration includes one drink ticket, appetizers, and a cash bar.

NOTE: If you took advantage of the "Meal Plan" prepayment option, you still need to register. You just won't have to pay for each meeting since that was done in the lump sum prepayment.


Location

West Main Crafting Co.
135 W. Main St.
Lexington, KY 40507

Event Fees:

Social Networking Rate $ 25.00
Monthly Meeting (Member Pre-Paid) $ 0.00
