About Us


The Chamber Networking Luncheon is a premier networking group of business owners and executives from American Canyon, Vallejo, Napa and beyond. We meet to exchange leads, meet new customers, colleagues, suppliers and friends. There is no membership fee. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsoring hotel, the only cost is a modestly priced (around $20) lunch, which can be purchased at the door without advance reservation.

A typical meeting looks like this:

  • 11:00 Open Networking
  • 11:30 Speaker presentation
  • 11:50 Announcements and Leads Celebration
  • 12:00 Lunch
  • 12:30 Meeting Officially Adjourned

(Some members stay behind for lingering lunch and continued informal networking.)


A group of leading business owners and executives saw a need for an open but serious business development group – more structured than an evening mixer yet less structured than other networking groups.

At CNL, we find it important to meet new people each month; to have a regular time and stylish space to deepen relationships, exchange leads and talk business; and to enjoy lunchtime conversation undisturbed by talk from the podium (or a seemingly endless round of 30-second elevator pitches.)

We celebrate formally when leads are shared, but we don’t pressure members to pass them. We believe leads are best exchanged organically as a result of genuine need and meaningful relationships. We believe businesses grow best by bringing smart business people together — to learn from each other, to help one another, to do business with each other (where there is a good fit.)

CNL operates at the center of the business community – which is why we are officially part of a Chamber rather than independent.


The Second and Fourth Tuesday of every month 11:00 – 12:30 for lunch at the DoubleTree Hotel in American Canyon.

To join, you must be a business owner or a representative of a business. If you are interested in attending, please join our Invitation List or stop by our next meeting – and introduce yourself and your business! Some Members make every meeting. Others drop in as their schedule allows. There are no attendance requirements.

Those who attend regularly are listed as Sponsors.
