People do Business with People — Not Companies.

Lane Leaders Association provides plenty of opportunities to get acquainted with the people that are behind Central Lane County's leading businesses.

Weekly Breakfast Meetings: Each week Lane Leaders come together to learn about the products, services and business practices of fellow Leaders. Every Leader present at the breakfast has an opportunity to introduce themselves, with plenty of time for contact and conversation with fellow Leaders before and after breakfast. Member firms rotate turns presenting their businesses to the group.

Open Houses: In addition to breakfast meetings, there are official Lane Leaders functions every month. Most months we will have a Business open house, where a member firm is given the opportunity to show off their business and location. These evening events also give our members an opportunity to network with other Leaders in a one-on-one setting.

Golf Tournament: They say that more business is done on the golf course than anywhere else. The annual Lane Leaders golf tournament is always well attended, even by those who are not golfers but are just out for a good time. The fun and camaraderie can't be beat.

Lane Leader Picnic: Summer is a great time to spend with friends. The annual picnic is a traditional evening of fun, food and drink with an opportunity to kick back and play together in a relaxing outdoor setting. Live music always enhances the festivities.

John Bristow Business Fair: An evening trade show, this is the biggest event of the year, and the best opportunity for members to give their firms significant exposure to hundreds of attendees. Members are encouraged to sponsor a booth to display their products and services.

Holiday Breakfast: This seasonal event is an opportunity to share the feelings of the season with fellow Leaders and their families. Holiday entertainment and fellowship is the theme of the morning.

Annual Dinner and Awards Presentations: Every year Leaders come together for an evening of good food, good company, dancing and a reflection of the accomplishments of the past year. Our prestigious "Rookie of the Year", and "Leader of the Year" awards are presented, and other top performing Leaders are recognized.

Whitewater Rafting Trip: The McKenzie River whitewater rafting trip is always a big splash with Lane Leaders.

Ems Game & Barbecue: This family oriented event is held on alternating years of the rafting trip and is always a big hit.
