First Thursday Mixers
First Thursday Mixers offer a relaxed atmosphere in which people can connect across industries, make new alliances, share ideas, problem-solve and learn about our diverse local business community. Hosts have the unique opportunity to offer a direct experience of their business to a pivotal group of people.
First Thursday Mixers are open to the public and everyone is encouraged to bring a business card for a chance to win an awesome door prize. Members can get noticed by contributing a raffle prize or by sharing news on the microphone during a “buck a cluck.”
Also, since May of 2016 our Mixer hosts agreed to no longer serve plastic water bottles and by June 2016 our hosts agreed to use all reusable dishware in an effort to meet the City of Arcata's zero waste goals.
