The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce annually hosts several unique events that provide our members with opportunities to promote their businesses, build relationships and connect with the community.
Annual Gala & Awards Banquet
A black tie-optional event, the annual Lake Norman Chamber Annual Gala & Awards banquet is an elegant night of celebration, during which the "changing of the guard" occurs as the outgoing Chamber Chairman hands over the reigns to the incoming Chair. There is also a presentation of the Robert T. Cashion Business Person of the Year award and the Duke Energy Citizenship & Service Award—which recognizes leadership and/or involvement in volunteerism and community service.
Annual Business Expo
The Lake Norman Chamber Expo is an event that provides member businesses the opportunity to showcase their goods and services to the Lake Norman community—both to the public and other member businesses. The Expo has between 150-200 exhibitors and sponsors and is attended by 1500-2000 members of the business community and public. This year it will take place on June 4th. For more information, visit 2015 Business Expo.
Champions of Diversity Luncheon
The Lake Norman Chamber's Diversity Council provides a forum for sharing vital information, networking and fostering professional development for minority and women-owned businesses. The Council also honors existing businesses in the Lake Norman region that embrace diversity in their everyday business practices.
Each year the Chamber's Diversity Council asks members of the community to nominate businesses that exemplify diversity for the Champion of Diversity Award, as well as a nominee they feel is worthy of the Champion of Diversity Lifetime Achievement Award. Winners are announced and awards are presented at the Annual Champions of Diversity luncheon in April.
Annual Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament
Dust off your clubs and prepare to hit the links with the Chamber for our Annual Fall Golf Classic. Combine your Chamber networking with a healthy dose of competition! It's also a great chance to entertain clients and customers. This Captain's Choice event hosts more than 125 players and participants. Members can become involved in a number of ways, including volunteering and sponsorship. The net proceeds from the tournament fund Chamber programs and operations. For more information about the tournament, or to become a sponsor, please call 704-892-1922 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
