    Building Business Relationships - One Table at a Time

    The Ashland Business Association is teaming up with the Hopkinton Chamber of Commerce and the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce for a fast-paced, effective way of networking. Members of all three organizations are welcome! A continental breakfast is included.

    7:30am-8:00am Unstructured Networking 
    8:00am-9:00am Speed Networking
    9:00am-9:30am Unstructured Networking

    Speed Networking works a lot like 'Speed Dating' without the 'Dating.' Speed Networking is a structured opportunity to meet accomplished professionals just like yourself, face to face, one business professional at time. Whether you are an entrepreneur, small business owner, legal or medical professional, in the finance, real estate or entertainment industry--this event is the perfect way to increase your business contacts.            

    • Friday, April 03, 2020
    • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
    • Mexico City, 1 W Union St., Ashland

    The ABA welcomes members and not-yet-members to this low key, casual networking opportunity.  All professionals are welcome whether you are simply working on building your network, looking for business leads, looking for a new job or just like to meet people. So come and bring a smile and lots of business cards and make some great connections. Even if this is your first networking event, ABA board members will make sure you make some great connections and feel very welcome. The goal is to build a great referral network for you for your success! 

    A delicious lunch buffet from Mexico City will be served and quite possibly a few videos of what makes Ashland a great place to live and work!

    • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    The ABA Spring Gala is a great way to connect with members you haven't seen in awhile and meet new members that will add to your contact base! The gala this year will have added "fun" by enjoying a comedy show you won't want to miss! 

    Come enjoy an Italian Buffet from ABA Member Chef Kim with Marconi's. Don't miss the food, the laughter and the connections!
