The FuseDSM Monthly Luncheon will typically be held on the 2nd Thursday of every month, however, there may be a change to the date or location occasionally as schedules change throughout the year. Each month the Chamber invites a dynamic speaker to provide timely information affecting our community, insight on issues concerning the community, or inspirational stories which resonate within the community.
There is networking time prior to the start of the program and lunch being served. This is the monthly event you do not want to miss to maintain those important relationships with your fellow members.
