Networking Opportunities


The Byron Area Chamber of Commerce offers a wide variety of networking opportunities for its members. Whether it's at our monthly Meet and Greets, Community Showcase or at our Annual Celebration, we are confident that our selection of networking opportunities will get you connected to area leaders. For those businesses that have employees, don't forget that each of them is automatically a member of the Chamber as well! Please make sure everyone knows about these great marketing and networking events!



Monthly Meet and Greets

Meet and Greets and Educational Events are the premier networking events for the Byron Chamber.

The five (5) scheduled Meet and Greets are opportunities for Chamber members and their employees to network with other members while learning a bit more about the monthly host. These Meet and Greets bring together businessmen and women for networking, door prizes, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. You won't want to miss this valuable networking opportunity!

The five (5) Educational Events will give Chamber members a chance to expand their knowledge about topics that may affect their business and our community. These will be a 'bring your own lunch' event.

We hope you and your employees will join us for these valuable networking opportunities!

Brrr Fest Logo

This is a festival of community events where businesses host holiday related activities to help the community "come out of hibernation" and join in some fun activities for both adults and kids.

Activities include meeting Santa and the Byron Bear, bundling up for a sleigh ride, an Underwear Run, cookie and craft making and much more!

The culmination of the weekends events ends with the community gathering to view the lighting of the BRRR FEST Christmas tree by the Mayor of Byron.
