The Chamber’s Membership Services encompass a variety of activities that promote local businesses and provide information for growth and collaboration opportunities. Chamber membership helps local business owners connect with the community, understand what is happening locally, and presents opportunities that may otherwise have been missed. From our After Hours Social and Winter Gala to Grant Opportunities and our Bi-weekly E-Newsletter “From The Ground Up”, the Chamber’s goal is to provide you with opportunities to grow your business.
From the Ground Up Chamber Newsletter
The Chamber’s ‘From The Ground Up’ newsletter is emailed to members and mailing list members bi-weekly. The newsletter is how we notify our readers and members of upcoming events, business opportunities, community news and announcements.
Start promoting your business to the local business community. Members are encouraged to submit information for the newsletter.
After Hours Social Events
The Gravenhurst Chamber’s After Hours Socials are fun. Networking should not be work. Getting to know your local businesses, finding out what’s new, and gaining a better understanding of what’s happening around Gravenhurst is the goal of these events. After Hours are hosted by local businesses and feature local culinary selections.
Gravenhurst Chamber Winter Gala
The Gravenhurst Chamber’s Winter Gala is the organization’s largest fundraising event. Taking place annually the third weekend in November, the event celebrates the local business community. The evening includes cocktails, dinner, live music, dancing, DJ, silent auction and raffles.
Selling out of tickets each year, the Gravenhurst Chamber’s Winter Gala is the largest business owner event in the community, hosting over 250 guests annually.
