Our membership luncheons, networking and legislative breakfasts, and professional development workshops and seminars are the backbone of the Chamber's activities. These represent excellent opportunities for our members to network among their colleagues and elite decision-makers while being exposed to useful knowledge and information that will help them grow their businesses.
Membership Luncheons: Several times a year, the Bolingbrook Chamber (in partnership with a sponsor) hosts networking luncheons for their members. Luncheon locations vary and have included traditional banquet style gatherings, as well as table-side talks at various restaurants. A typical luncheon attendance averages around 100 business professionals. Each luncheon we recognize an assortment of members for their achievements, and new members are introduced and given some "mic time" as a commercial opportunity. Sponsors receive exclusive right to use the tables to distribute marketing materials, print and electronic marketing, and also receive a commercial opportunity at the luncheon.
January: State of the Village Address featuring over 700 area business and community leaders
Networking Breakfasts: We recognize that everyone is not available to attend lunch time events, so we have many options for our morning members as well. These include our “rally” style Ambassador Networking Breakfasts held bi-monthly at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. This event provides a great chance for our Ambassadors to network with other Ambassadors and sign up for future events.
Typically, each quarter, the Chamber also hosts a Legislative Breakfast featuring our area elected officials or legislation-specific experts on hand to help inform our members how actions in Springfield, Washington, D.C., and even in our local community impact their businesses.
Each of these present opportunities for business development, marketing, and sponsorship recognition. For more specific details please contact Saba Rashid at (630) 226-8420
