Since the formation of the Chamber, the Annual Meeting is a great way to celebrate our successes during a year. This year our Board Chair, Mark Woolwine, will have so much to celebrate with his program of work. We also use this program to celebrate the success of our members.

The two beverage tickets can be used at the bars inside the ballroom. If you would prefer a drink that is not served at the bars inside the ballroom, you may purchase a drink inside Preston’s restaurant.
