FUSE | Ignite Conversation - Cultivate Ideas - Create Opportunity WHAT IS FUSE? FUSE is a FREE learning and networking event for Chamber members and their employees to collaborate, learn and make positive advancements for the community where we work and live. FUSE is designed to ignite conversation and cultivate ideas that create opportunities of community betterment and economic growth in St. Charles County.
At FUSE you can expect to gain information that will benefit your business while sharing your own ideas with fellow business leaders. At FUSE you are part of a larger network to move our community forward through education, advocacy, and positive conversation.
This is open-house style! Join us in the commons where members can network and partake in food and beverage (like a Business After Hours) or listen to speakers / panels on informative topics and participate in the discussion. It's different than a membership meeting! We want and encourage engagement from the attendees.
Attending FUSE is a FREE Member benefit for Chamber Members & Invited Guests.
