Our Annual Events

Annual Meeting and Gala

The Annual Meeting and Gala, held in January, is an opportunity for the Chamber to show its appreciation to all our members. This is a chance for members to network with other members, the Board of Directors, Ambassadors, and Chamber Staff. Awards are presented throughout the event to honor and recognize outstanding individuals in our community. The Gala is also an opportunity for Chamber members to learn the Chamber’s initiatives for the upcoming year and reflect on the highlights and successes of the previous year. Awards presented are Chamber Business of the Year, Sally Daniels Member of the Year, and Gilmer County Citizen of the Year.

Business Connections

Quarterly, we invite all Gilmer County businesses (Chamber members and non-members alike) to a fun evening called business connections.

Business Workshops – Sponsored by Amicalola EMC

Four times a year we will have a business workshop with subjects important to our membership. Topics may include social media, marketing, and workforce development. Each workshop is a hands-on training and deep dive into the subject. Email membership@shztky688.com to claim your spot.

“Chamber 101” Orientation Breakfast – Sponsored by Amicalola EMC

Held quarterly, this is an opportunity for new or potential members to get to know the chamber structure, staff, board, and most importantly to learn how to take advantage of the many benefits of chamber membership. This is a wonderful way to find our which chamber programs will most benefit your business. Come for breakfast, meet new businesses in the community, and walk away with the tools you need to make the most of chamber membership!

Education Celebration

Th Chamber Board of Directors and staff want to make sure our educators are welcomed back to a new school year. For more business exposure, chamber members provide door prizes to be given away to the educators during their first staff meeting in appreciation of what they do for the youth of Gilmer County. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available during the days prior to school starting back.

Network Luncheons

Offered to chamber member, on the 2nd Thursday of each month members gather for lunch to network, build business contacts, and hear guest speakers on subjects relevant to the business community. Each luncheon is sponsored by a different company, which gives a short presentation about their business. Door prizes are given away at the end of the lunch.

Operation Thank You

Each year our board members, ambassadors, and staff spend one week making special visits to each of our members to thank them for their continued support. It is a small way of expressing our deep appreciation for their commitment to our community and their chamber. A small gift is delivered to each and represents a great deal of appreciation.
