MEMBERSHIP EVENTS


Some of the large events are organized by our Membership Department. These include Annual Membership Meeting and Holiday Open House.

 

ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING



The Chamber’s Annual Membership Meeting recaps and provides updates on economic development activities and promotes other outstanding successes from the previous year. It also serves as a celebration of the outgoing board chair passing the gavel to the incoming chair. In addition, the Distinguished Service Award is presented to the community’s most dedicated and deserving volunteer. The luncheon also features a prominent speaker for the lunch keynote address.
