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:   On the third Thursday of each month, the Bolingbrook Chamber (in partnership with a sponsor) hosts a networking luncheon.  Everyone from the Chamber is invited to attend for a nominal fee.  Luncheon locations vary each month 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 month 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.

          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 Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant.  This event provides a great chance for our Ambassadors to network with other Ambassadors and sign up for future events, all while enjoy a custom made, southern-style breakfast from Chef Simon and the staff at Gordon Biersch.

          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
