The YCC also host regular networking events, like -

Chamber Coffees: Every other Thursday, in Flinders Square, the City.  Between 8am and 9am.
The Coffees are an open-style of networking, with no RSVP required and no speeches. You grab a coffee from your favourite place, bring some business cards and meet the 25 to 30 people usually in attendance. The Coffees are a great way to break into the business network and to expand your existing networks.

Cash Mob: like Flash Mob but for shopping. With $20 in hand and using Social Media to communicate, the YCs come together to shop in a locally-owned business and support the local economy.  Find out more at /townsvillecashmob.
