Levels for each event are announced as dates approach.

Volunteer positions are generally welcome at events and provide a great way of getting to know others in the business community. Wearing of logo-wear is encouraged.

Holiday Promotions

As the holidays approach with Small Business Saturday, Shop Small, Shop Local, and Black Friday campaigns, along with open houses, events and holiday specials… rather than create yet another activity the Chamber will offer free help to its member businesses to promote their holiday events. Watch e-blasts for details on how to submit.
