  • If your event is a public event, the Chamber will send your ceremony information to our Ambassadors, Chamber Board of Directors, City Elected Officials (Mayor/City Council), Assemblymen, and State Representatives.  We encourage you to invite family, friends, colleagues, media, etc. (expect 5-10 Chamber attendees for open events)
  • Your ceremony photos and description will be featured on the Chamber’s Flickr and in the Chamber’s publication The Business Connection magazine. Announcements will be made in the Chamber Weekly the week of your ceremony, the Chamber Facebook page, and on our website.
  • The Chamber will provide specialty scissors, ribbon, and a short agenda/timeline for the ceremony. Please note: the Chamber does not provide a PA system.
  • Have fun!  This is your opportunity to let the community know all about your business.
