Lead Explosion

The 8th Annual Lead Explosion is a joint event hosted by the Greater Hewitt Chamber and Women of Waco networking organization which consists of both individual and group networking. The evening kicks off with cocktails followed by structured networking that enables attendees to reach a large group of local business leaders all at once.

Registration is limited to three companies per category and one per company; men are welcome to attend. Remember to bring extra business cards!
