Over the past couple of weeks I have had some phone calls about our big event coming up on Friday, November 21st. It is our Annual General Membership Meeting. I hope this helps answer some of those questions that have come up recently.
Q: What is an AGM?
A: It is our Annual General Membership Meeting. A little Chamber Business mixed with a lot of networking, dancing…lots of fun!
Q: Is this a formal event? It looks fancy on the posters.
A: No, it is business casual. However, it is a festive occasion and please feel free to dress up if you would like. So, pull out your dancing shoes and we’ll see you there!
We used photos from the Event Center on the poster. We apologize for any confusion.
Q: Can I donate a item for the Silent Auction?
A: Of course, we would love that and it is a great way to support the Chamber while
also advertising your business.
Q: How can I purchase tickets? And do I have to buy a table?
A: You can purchase tickets at the Visitor Information Center at 7900 Birch Bay Drive and online at www.birchbaychamber.com and follow the link to buy your tickets. No, there are tables available for you to purchase for your company or group but individual tickets are also available. We are selling tickets at a quick pace, so be sure to secure your tickets now.

A: There are Four (4) positions opening up to be filled.
Q: How can I put my name in as a Candidate for the Board?

your business background, and why you would like to be on the Board. Please e-mail your
intent to run and bio to Sarah by 3:00pm on Friday, November 14th. Or Click Here.
