Christmas Luncheon – More than 200 members annually attend this legislative luncheon at our local country club. The luncheon features updates from our local, state and federal representatives on issues that may impact businesses and the community.

Corporate and Community Challenge – The Chamber hosted the first Corporate and Community Challenge in partnership with the Hanover Area YMCA and Hickory Falls Family Entertainment Center in 2014.  The event featured team building activities for local business teams, and proceeds benefited the Chamber’s workforce development initiatives.

Dutch-FestDutch Festival – Bratwurst, funnel cakes,handmade crafts, and authentic German bands and dancers – combined, these traditions have drawn thousands of people to Center Square, Hanover, for over three decades. The Festival features 330+ vendors, Kids Carnival, Antique/Classic Car Show and German entertainment. This event attracts 10,000 people a year, and is in its 34th year.

Golf Outing – The majority of new members join for marketing and networking opportunities. The Chamber’s Golf Outing provides the opportunity for them to interact with 125 business men and women. Golfers can nurture existing business relationships, develop new contacts, and of course, have lots of fun. Non-golfers can still network during the steak dinner (after golf). The annual event is in its 46th year and is promoted through a radio sponsorship, news releases, e-blasts, direct mail to past participants and newsletter.

Legislative Roundtables – Held quarterly, these breakfasts offer members the opportunity to discuss pertinent issues with local legislators.
