About 90 business leaders and entrepreneurs from four area chambers of commerce exchanged ideas and business cards at the banquet hall in Plainview Wednesday.
Billed as a "Multi-chamber Networking Extravaganza, participants from the Plainview, Syosset, Hicksville and Farmingdale chambers networked at a cocktail hour and buffet dinner. Several public officials were also on hand.
Then, for about 90 minutes, participants in the second-annual event passed the microphone around, summarizing their businesses and promoting opportunities to the larger group.
The presidents of each chamber: (Hicksville) (Syosset) (Farmingdale) and (Plainview) provided a brief introduction and presented a check to for $280 in donations from the groups. Jim Hill, business development manager for Island Harvest, was on hand to accept the check.
All four chamber leaders called the annual get-together a success and vowed to continue the tradition.
