Programming for Business Success
When you're participating in our events and programs, you are networking for growth at the Chamber. The Chamber meets on the first Wednesday of the month for its Monthly Membership Luncheons exploring topics and business trends important to the economic climate of the Sound Sound region.
Connecting our members to issues and ideas are business briefings and roundtables which address local and regional projects and initiatives. Educational and training sessions are scheduled as workshops and seminars throughout the year and focus on improving skills and sharing knowledge to help make your business more successful.
Signature Events held each year include the Gala & Impact Awards, the Golf Classic, and the annual Summit.
