Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Openings and/or Anniversary ceremonies are all offered to members of the Chico Chamber. Contact Heather Ugie to schedule yours today!

Business Crawl

Launched in September of 2013, we offer Chamber members an evening tour of a select few local member companies. Network, get an inside view of local businesses, and meet the teams that make them successful.  This is a great opportunity for our member businesses to tell their stories, extend hospitality, and connect with new faces.  Shuttle service & refreshments provided. Contact Heather Ugie to sign-up as a Business Crawl event host or sponsor!  

Let's Do Lunch!

Chamber Members + 1 Local Restaurant + 1 Hour = Great Networking Opportunity!  Every first Friday of the month we welcome Chamber members to join us for a casual noon-time event where we pair you with other members to spend your lunch hour with.  Pre-registration is required and members are responsible for paying for their own lunches.  Contact Heather Ugie to sign-up for an upcoming Let's Do Lunch!.
