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.”
In spring 2016 the Arcata Chamber became the first Chamber of Commerce to switch to reusables and throw zero waste mixers which helps the City of Arcata meet its zero waste goals.
