• Morning, Noon and Night Networking
    The Chamber is proud to announce its new networking events format. Every month, on the first, second and third Tuesdays, April through December, the Chamber will now offer three times for members to get together-- breakfast, lunch and happy hour.  All networking events are free for members in good standing with a charge for non-members. Non-members pay $15 for the First Tuesday Power Breakfast, $10 for the EXCELerate! Speed Networking and $20 for Business After Hours. Online registration is encouraged.  See Networking Events Schedule at left.

    Beginning in April, every month, the Chamber will host the following networking events:

     
    FIRST TUESDAY POWER BREAKFAST - 7:30 am - 9:00 am on the first Tuesday, will include a light continental breakfast and an optional 10-minute speaking opportunity for the host to talk about a topic of interest to the business community.
     
    BUSINESS AFTER HOURS - 5:00 - 7:00 pm on the 2nd Tuesday, takes place in a relaxed setting with libations and appetizers at favorite and new venues.
     
    EXCELerate! - 11:30 am - 1:00 pm on the 3rd Tuesday, is a fun speed-networking event, combining fun and fast-paced "hello" conversations and beverages.  Quite simply, you will chat for 5 minutes with someone until the bell rings, then you talk to another person.  By the end of the lunch, you've had a brief chat with everyone there!  It's fast-paced and FUN!   Lunch will be either your own brown bag lunch or purchasing the venue's lunch special. Tell me more about what to expect.

    More Chamber Events Coming Soon

    The Annual Excellence in Business Awards and Annual General Membership Meeting is set for June 5 at the Elks Club. Late summer, the Chamber on the Green Golf Classic, with a new twist, is being planned. 

    The Chamber will also hold its annual Career Fair on September 10.  Visit Bear Valley Electric on April 20 to celebrate Earth Day and visit our display, where games and fun await the kiddies.  During both of the June and September Village Wine Walks, the Chamber will be under the white popup at the corner of Pine Knot and Village Drive, handing out water, selling wine holders and welcoming visitors to Big Bear. 

    Don't forget to visit the Chamber Spooky Photo Booth on Halloween night in the Village, where we will give away sugary treats and provide a creepy backdrop with props for your selfies.

    There's more in store for Chamber members and the community this year!  Be on the lookout for details.
