The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) will host its 3rd Annual Bowling with the Board on Thursday, October 17. The event will be held at and is sponsored by Bowlmor Rockville in Gaithersburg.

“I love this event. Everyone has a great time and bowling provides a great opportunity to make an even greater connection with the members of your team”, said Marilyn Balcombe, GGCC President/CEO.

The GGCC hosts over 30 networking and special events annually. In order to keep the events fresh and energetic, we had to find creative ways to do so. Bowling with the Board is one of these – “out-of-the-box” – concepts we developed to keep its members and guests appeased.

Another purpose of this Chamber event is the opportunity allotted to its members and visitors to not only network but the valuable one-on-one time with their Board Members.

This is a different type of event; it is so much more than shaking hands or handing out business cards. By providing a great venue and “bowling with a twist”, we hope you will easily make connections with other people.

We invite you to take advantage of all that the GGCC has to offer. Please register to attend this event or one of our upcoming events. Visit us at ggchamber.org for further details. We hope to see you soon.
