It was a small turnout but the participants made some great contacts at the May 20th Speed Networking event held at the Pekin Holiday Inn Express. The chambers of commerce in Tazewell County (East Peoria, Morton, Pekin and Washington) take turns hosting the quarterly networking event. Participants sit across a table from each other and have 90 seconds to talk about themselves. Then they listen to their partner's 90 second introduction. Then everyone gets up and moves to a new seat and the introductions start over. It is a great opportunity to meet a large number of people in a short amount of time. The Washington Chamber of Commerce will host the next speed networking event in August.
