Events & Networking
Make the most of your membership by attending networking events like the ones listed below. As a member you receive a discounted ticket prices.
Luncheons are held the 2nd Thursday of every month (except June) and are attended by local business people, as well as city, county and state officials. All members of the community are encouraged to attend. By attending these luncheons you are able to meet and network with other chamber members and most importantly, potential customers. New members are introduced, renewing members are showcased on our power point program and displayed throughout the luncheon, and a “Members Only” cash drawing is given away every month. Sponsoring a luncheon gives you the opportunity to present your business by giving presentations, and/or inviting a guest speaker.
Business after Hours
Business after Hours is held quarterly in the months of February, May, August and November from 5:30-7pm and attended by chamber members, customers of sponsoring business, as well as city county officials. It is an environment for local business people to kick back with great food and beverages in a casual, relaxed atmosphere after normal business hours. The sponsoring chamber business has the opportunity to give a brief presentation about its business and introduce its staff.
Every year the Chamber is host to this special night of dinner, awards, and entertainment in honor of its members. After nominations are accepted, awards are presented to local citizens and business owners who have earned the support and recognition of the businesses and our community.
