The regular networking event 'Happy Hour' is held on the third Thursday of every month (except July & Aug). These events provide information relevant to the members on issues involving businesses in the community. The meetings also provide a venue for networking for business owners and for members doing business in the Fall River and surrounding areas.
The Annual General Meeting is held in June of each year.
