The Chamber of Commerce holds monthly board meetings, which are open to the public. The schedule for meetings is determined at the beginning of each year, following the election of three incoming board members at our Annual Meeting in January.
2013 Board Meeting Schedule
SunDowners are Business After Hours Networking events. SunDowners are perfect if you are a new business, a business that has added a feature or expanded your services, or a great way to bring recognition to your business. Signing up for a Sundowner occurs once a year; the first Monday in October and is on a first come, first served basis. We also encourage businesses to partner for a SunDowner especially if you are a home-based business. For more information on hosting a SunDowner, contact the Chamber.
Business Bites Luncheons
Business Bites occur once a month, typically on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Every month there is a different topic including marketing, finance, insurance, tax credits, business expansion, and other pertinent information that would aid you in running your business more efficiently. The sessions last approximately one hour and lunch is included. A small fee is charged. Contact the Chamber or check the calendar for the monthly topic and location.
Maximizing Your Membership
Maximizing Your Membership is a service offered to Chamber members or businesses interested in becoming a Chamber member where your Chamber benefits are reviewed. This session will aid you in utilizing the Chamber website to the best of YOUR advantage and gives you content management control. The two hour class also informs you of various sponsorship and advertising opportunities and services offered by the Chamber at little or no cost. Maximizing Your Membership classes are usually held on the last Monday of each month in the Chamber conference room. Join us from 11:30am to 1:30pm, and we will provide lunch. The class is free. Call the Chamber to RSVP at (970) 264-2360.
