Held annually in July, The Mid-Year Meeting gives Chamber investors a chance to come together and reconnect. The program includes a featured speaker and the recognition of the Chamber Scholarship Award winner. The I Love BG Award, the Small Business of the Year Award, and the Outstanding Customer Service Award are presented as well.
This annual fundraiser helps to support the mission of the Chamber. Held the last week of August, it is time to relax and enjoy a day of fun, networking, and golf! Spots for teams fill up quickly, so download the brochure when available, and sign your team up early! Sponsorships are also available. All sponsors will be recognized in print, as well as numerous other benefits listed in the brochure.
Celebrate the holidays and the beauty of BG with the Chamber Holiday Parade. Held in the downtown area, the parade is an excellent way to showcase your organization.
You can view a recording of the 2018 Parade here. Thank you to WTOL-11 and our Presenting Sponsors.
Annual Meeting Dinner & Awards
At the beginning of each year investors are invited to the Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting Dinner & Awards. This is an opportunity for investors to kick back and network with old friends as well as meet new friends. At this time the gavel is handed over to the new Board President, and the Chamber's annual awards are given out: Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award (Female and Male), the international Athena Award, and the Zeus Award. The 2019 AMDA was held on January 26.
Blood Analysis Program
The BG Chamber of Commerce and Wood County Hospital host the annual Blood Analysis Program on a Saturday in April each year. The comprehensive blood analysis includes a complete cholesterol check with HDL, LDL and triglycerides, liver and kidney function. Additional available tests include the TSH thyroid test and a PSA test for men, each for an additional fee. Blood pressure checks are also offered. Proceeds from the event will go to support the Chamber Foundation and Wood County Hospital Foundation Scholarship Funds.
