“When consumers know that a small business is a member of the Chamber of Commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods and service from that business in the future.”
This event occurs annually in January, showcasing area businesses, outstanding service, and community partnerships. In addition, the Gala provides the Chamber occasion to raise funds for a monetary donation to our chosen Charity of Choice and to enhance Chamber member benefits.
Charity of Choice
Each year, the Chamber selects a community project or not-for-profit organization in our community. The Chamber provides volunteer hours, financial resources, and regular promotion of the charity.
This program is held quarterly to provide educational development to our members. Specific business topics are covered during the event, as well as time to network.
These events allow members to showcase their business or new location and are held approximately twice a month at pre-determined times.
Held monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, this networking opportunity is a great way to get to know other Chamber members, as well as to partake in lunch at one of our many fabulous member restaurants. Please check the Chamber calendar for dates and locations. These lunches are always held at other Chamber member establishments.
Each Spring, Team Educate sponsors a trip to Jefferson City to meet with our elected officials.
Held in early Fall, this event allows for a non-partisan forum for local, state and federal officials to discuss what lies ahead for the Parkville/Platte County area. This is a joint effort of all Platte County Chambers including Platte City, Riverside, Weston and Parkville.
This program is designed to educate new members within the Chamber about programs, events, and the benefits of membership.
