The Wasilla Chamber offers these exciting tools as part of your core membership, designed to help you succeed.
Meet and network with your fellow chamber members every Tuesday for lunch. Whether you are new to the area or have done business here for decades, there is always an opportunity to meet a new client, develop a new relationship, or find a new program partner at our weekly meetings. A schedule of our weekly speakers is available on the main page of our website.
How? Arrive at The Grill between 11:30 am and 12:00 pm on any Tuesday.
Luncheon Business Spotlight
Showcase your business with a 5-minute ‘member spotlight.’ Present a slide-show, play a game, have some fun with it! This is also your opportunity to place print material at lunch tables for that meeting.
How? Contact the Membership Director to schedule your Spotlight.
Chamber Luncheon Announcements
Each GWCC luncheon offers several 1-minute announcements so you can let other members know what is happening at your business or organization. And bring your supporting brochure or other printed material for the information table in the lobby.
How? Sign up early at the front counter when checking in for a meeting.
