The monthly Forum for the Lacey Chamber of Commerce is a great opportunity to visit with old friends, make new business connections, and hear insightful speakers on a variety of topics that have an effect on the business climate in and around Lacey. The Chamber president makes a great effort to provide relevant subjects and the staff works hard to uncover the speakers or assemble the panels that lead to lively discussions during and after the Forum. The greatest challenge presented to the staff each month is about the quantity of lunches to order. This is Chamber simile to the three bears. If we order 100 lunches and 90 people eat lunch at the Forum, then we are still charged for the 100 lunches. If we order 100 and 120 purchase lunch, well we have a different challenge as Bon Appetite does not cook on-site. Online registration and pre-payment makes this a more educated estimate for the staff and saves you money at the same time. Best of all, it’s fast and easy!

To pre-pay and save $7.00 on your lunch, you need to add two easy steps—simply check the number of lunches you wish to purchase and add the names of the people who are joining you. After you click on submit, you’ll be taken to the payment screen to enter your credit card information and you’re registered and paid. Everyone now loves you because you did many things with this action you took. You saved time and money, both things we can never have enough of. You now get to go through the speedy line at the registration desk because all we need to do is check off your name and hand you a ticket for lunch. That leaves you more time to network and potentially get that big business deal you’ve been waiting on. You’ve made forecasting the lunch count more accurate for the staff, and that helps us control Forum costs, which allows us to continue delivering great value for our members.
