We are thrilled and excited to invite you to the 2023 Chamber Annual Meeting!
Since the formation of the Chamber, the Annual Meeting has been a great way to celebrate our successes during the year. This year our Board Chair, Robyn Jones, will have so much to celebrate with our program of work. We also use this program to celebrate the success of our members. Schedule of Events:
4:30 pm | Doors open for check-in 5:00 pm | Cocktail hour begins and check-in continues for Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner 5:45 pm | Relocate to ballroom 6:00 pm | Opening remarks and dinner
Cocktail hour will begin promptly at 5:00 pm and the seating of guests for the evening will begin at 5:45 pm. Please note that this year’s event is beginning earlier than previous years. All guests should be seated promptly at 6:00 for opening remarks.
To ensure a smooth check-in procedure, please know your company name that you are registered under. This information is required at the time of check-in.
If you are not seated at a reserved table, you will be able to choose from open seating in the ballroom. Reserved seating for tables will be clearly marked with a sign on the table.
If you are unsure of which company you are registered under, please reach out to the Chamber office by Wednesday.
Our staff will be checking-in attendees based on alphabetical order by company name and handing out each attendee two beverage tickets at the time of check-in.
The two beverage tickets can be used at the bars located in the ballroom or foyer-area. 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.
Dress attire for the evening is semi-formal.
