These GOACC's one-hour Lunch and Learn workshops are brown bag events created for communication, collaboration and learning.

Erica Dreher, GOACC membership outreach coordinator, said, “Several of our 2020 Lunch and Learns will be considered a ‘personal enrichment’ topic.  They will enable our members and their employees to explore new interests, develop skills and further your passions.” 

Lunch and Learn workshops are conducted by local business experts, Chamber members and associates of Chamber partners.

This is the first of the Lunch and Learn series of 2020, and others will occur throughout the calendar year. The next one is scheduled for Feb. 25 and will be conducted by Southern Tier Security with the topic of workplace safety and prevention.  

The workshops are held at the Chamber’s office on 301 N. Union St. They are free for GOACC members; there is a $10 admission fee for non-members.
