The Buchanan PERC Club
The Buchanan PERC Club is a dynamic group of professionals representing all sectors of the community. From industry and finance to education and non-profit, and all areas in between, the PERC Club is where connections begin over a cup of coffee and a conversation. Members meet once a month to enjoy breakfast and talk business while strengthening ties between our commercial and community interests. The PERC Breakfast takes place the third Friday of the month (from September to May) at various locations throughout the area and all members of the Buchanan Chamber of Commerce and their guests are invited to attend. Each month the PERC Breakfast is sponsored by a local business or organization whose leaders will serve as hosts and provide a short presentation regarding best practices or an overview of available products and services. Meetings also include networking opportunities and a chance to exchange business leads and acknowledge referrals.
