Click on this category to view all upcoming official Chamber events, including Business Builders Workshops, Brown Bag Seminars, Ribbon Cuttings, Mixers, and Special Events. The Chamber holds several special events a year, including the Annual Awards Dinner & Dance, Business Excellence Awards, Monterey Bay Business Expo, Annual Membership Luncheon, Annual Leadership Luncheon, Chamber Golf Classic, Quarterly New Member Briefings, and various other seminars and workshops that are useful for our members.
Brown Bag Seminars
The Brown Bag Lunch Program is free, open to both Chamber members and the general public. Attendees can bring their own lunch and eat it while listening to qualified professionals who will present a variety of practical, useful topics of interest to business owners, employees and the public. Opportunities for sharing expertise and knowledge are available to member businesses. The seminars are held 12:30–1:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month at the Turf Club, Monterey Fair Grounds, unless noted otherwise.
Ribbon cutting events offer exceptional marketing opportunities for member companies. In addition to extending invitations to all members and the community at large, the promotion and publicity exposure that attends ribbon cuttings makes them one of the Chamber’s most sought after benefits.
These popular after-hours networking events are held throughout the year, generally on Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The $10 admission includes food and beverage. This is a valuable PR opportunity for the host member, allowing attendees to experience firsthand the ambience and services/products you have to offer, and a valuable networking opportunity.
Special events and promotions from our member businesses as well as other community event information. *Please note that these are not official Chamber events, therefore you should contact the business directly if you would like more information.
