Networking Breakfasts

Coffee & conversation with Arcadia business leaders

sponsor Rose Hills mortuaryRose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary is the Keystone Club 365 Connection sponsor of the Networking Breakfasts.

These gatherings are on the third Thursday of each month (except for December) primarily in the Santa Anita Golf Course Sunset Room, which is on the south end of the Arcadia Park. Occasionally different locations are chosen as noted.

After enjoying a great buffet breakfast and mingling with dozens of others, attendees are invited to give a 30-second “elevator pitch” about their business.

Most months the Chamber and the Arcadia Historical Society also present a certificate of appreciation to an Arcadia Business Icon. Click here for photos and video of a typical recent Networking Breakfast.
