Held the third Thursday of every month, After Hours brings business people together for an evening of networking and refreshments.
Trend: Why did you decide to host a Chamber networking event?
Southerly: We wanted to host an event to meet other active members in Chattanooga. We are hoping to network with other business owners in the community.
T: What is special about your business?
S: We are a female-owned business. Our firm's design philosophy blends classical and contemporary elements; I love working with pieces clients already own – the mix of old and new creates a space that looks collected instead of designed.
T: What’s your favorite part of being a Chamber member and why?
S: We are fairly new to the Chattanooga area and to the Chamber; however, during our brief membership time, we have already learned a great deal about the community and met other interesting professionals.
T: How does your business make a difference in our community?
S: We bring good design to a variety of settings.
T: Anything else you’d like to add?
S: We have found Chattanooga to be a very welcoming and fun city. We are so proud to be a part of this community.
