Founded in 2013, The Chain is an organization dedicated to building business relationships while giving back to the surrounding communities. The chain is more than a connected series of links. It stands for Charity, Humility, Autonomy, Intelgrity, and Networking. Each letter representing the core values of the group. The founders agreed that the typical networking breakfast or the occasional mixer event was not enough. Their passion for helping others, and their drive to get involved in the local community sparked the implementation of The Chain. Chain Members are exposed to Bi-Weekly networking breakfasts, monthly network fundraisers, and a day of service. It is through these different networking opportunities that members leave Chain functions with a relationship rather than just a business card. The Chain is welcoming new members on board who are looking to better their business while helping to make a difference.

"We have attended many breakfast meetings, but this was by far the best. You could just feel the natural energy in the room. It did not feel forced in any way. We are very happy to be a part of what you worked so hard to build and look forward to the next breakfast meeting and future events." Carolyn & Alisa - Samuelson, Hause & Samuelson, LLP
