Time: 7:45 AM - 9:00 AM PST

Event Description:
At Columbia Bank we pride ourselves on being your consultative financial advisor. Our personal service and local decision making allow us the flexibility and customization that national banks can’t touch, even though we offer the same products and services that they do. When you want a bank that is driven by relationships, you want Columbia Bank.

(Parking lot is first come first served. Please enter through the doors off of the parking lot on Grand Street.)




About ShopTalk:
ShopTalk is your opportunity to have an exclusive inside look at different Alliance member companies. Join fellow Alliance members to "talk shop" over coffee and a light breakfast. The event features open networking, member introductions, a brief host presentation, and a door-prize drawing.   

Membership and Attendance:
The Alliance is a membership-based organization so attendance at Alliance events is a benefit of membership. It is Alliance policy to welcome first-time, non-members to attend up to two networking events (ShopTalk, and Building Business Connections) without charge. You must RSVP by calling Rebecca McCulloch at 503-552-6759 by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 4th.
 
Membership is required for attendance at all additional networking events. We encourage you to become a member of the Alliance so that you can receive the benefits of membership that come with attendance at Alliance networking events.
