We must have at least a 30 day notice in advance to schedule a mixer or Ribbon Cutting.
Question 4. "I didn't register, can I still attend?" - [return to top]
Answer. No. The Chamber and our hosts spend painstaking time in preparation and setup to coordinate events, including food and beverage counts. We arrange tables, seating and more. Obviously "door crashing" is an unfair practice to fellow members and attendees who did register.
Question 5. "Can I present or speak at a Chamber function?" - [return to top]
Answer. Possibly. Speakers are usually chosen by our executive team, a committee or our board of directors. We certainly try to accommodate people interested in speaking, but in the end we must choose industry experts that share critical and valuable information with our members. With a limited number of speaking engagements our executive team, committees and board must carefully choose luncheon & event speakers. Each event is coordinated by its individual committee. You are encouraged to contact the committee to ask about speaking engagements.
Question 6. "Can I bring a non-member guest to a Chamber event?"
Answer. It depends on the event. Certain events we can find ourselves with additional room, other events have strict seating & food availability. If you are unsure you can always contact The Chamber directly to see if it's alright to bring guests. Visit our Contact Us page to connect with us.
