Chamber Brief – September 2021 [Free read]
From 8-lunch tables at the Women’s Business Council to after-hours business networking at the Virginia Beer Company and the Great Wolf Lodge, the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce has had a busy summer.
We especially enjoyed celebrating the vision and growth of The Edge District at our Running With Scissors event in late July. With more than thirty supporting community members, the Chamber organized a total of 13 consecutive ribbon cuts in partnership with the York County, City of Williamsburg and James City County Economic Development Offices.
The House is also looking forward to its after-hours activity in September, which will be held at CMA’s Williamsburg Ford on September 16 at 5 p.m. The event is co-hosted by AMC’s Williamsburg SCORE and Local Daily Media.
Join us for a fun evening of networking, live band music and heavy appetizers. Tickets cost $ 15, which also includes two alcoholic drinks. House staff will organize a 50/50 raffle at check-in and draw names for door prizes. Buy your tickets today to join us before we sell all of your tickets!
The House is proud to present its annual Oktoberfest Party at Busch Gardens Williamsburg on October 12, 2021. It is the only after-hours private party at Busch Gardens this fall. Bring your friends and colleagues as we celebrate Oktoberfest in Germany’s Busch Gardens area, and enjoy a fun night out with food, drinks, games, prizes, live DJ, photo ops with wandering Howl-O-Scream characters and unlimited rides on Verbolten, Swings, Der Autobahn bumper cars and the Mach tower. Early bird tickets are on sale until September 12, and group discounts are available for orders of 10 or more tickets. Buy your tickets today!
In partnership with WYDaily, the Chamber continues to promote local employment opportunities through its online jobs dashboard. Designed to make advertising simple and straightforward to apply, the Jobs Dashboard is promoted on social media, sent to local schools, and distributed weekly to House members in the weekly newsletter.
Member companies can submit jobs for free on the Job Board.
