There are many ways to become active with the Chamber. It can be overwhelming at first when you start learning about all the things the Chamber as to offer, but don’t worry! We are here to help you.
Many members find that a great place to start is to attend our Chamber 101 class. Chamber 101 is a free hour-long program that will give you an overview of Chamber events, programs, advertising opportunities, committees and member benefits.
You can also contact us to schedule a personalized meeting. We will sit down with you, discuss your interests and objectives, and then recommend the best involvement options for you and your business.
Events are the perfect way to become involved with the Chamber. You will meet your fellow members and learn about Chamber member benefits, all while marketing your business.
Networking meetings are an excellent way to also meet people and gain business prospects. The Buffalo Chamber offers a morning meeting and an afternoon meeting.
Good Morning Buffalo (GMB) is periodically held on the third Friday of the month from 7:30 am to approximately 8:30 am. A member hosts the meeting at their location and provides a complimentary breakfast. Each attendee will be asked to introduce themselves and talk a minute about what they do. Bring your business card for a prize drawing!
Good Afternoon Buffalo (GAB) is periodically held from 4:30 pm to 6 pm on the third Thursday of the month. This meeting has a more relaxed atmosphere being there are no formal introductions. Members meet and socialize with other members in a relaxed environment. Typically, the locations are held at a restaurant with a lounge.
Business luncheons are held on a quarterly basis with a variety of different topics that pertain to managing your business. These events give you the opportunity to network with other businesses, learn something new from a guest speaker that will help you expand and improve your business.
Committee involvement with programs you care about connects you to the information and people that will enhance the value of your membership. The Chamber offers current members a range of opportunities to share their expertise and enthusiasm with the community. We have committees for all of our events, marketing, community development and the Ambassadors committee. Contact a Chamber representative to find out what type of committee would best suit your needs.
