Get Involved

How Can You Get Involved in the Greater Vail Area Chamber of Commerce?

Every month, the Greater Vail Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a variety of events for our members. You can get involved by sponsoring, speaking, hosting, or attending one of these events. From morning breakfasts and mid-day seminars to evening mixers, there are a variety of programs each month to fit almost everyone’s work schedule.

NOTE: Speaking, sponsorship and hosting opportunities are only available to our members. Join today! Or,  click here to explore more of the benefits of joining the chamber.  

Join a Committee

One of the best ways to engage with other members and the community is to join a committee. From helping with the Vail Country Fair or Golf Tournament, to serving with the Programs, Membership or Communications chair, there's a need for your talents and interests.

Serving on a committee can be as much or as little of a commitment as you'd like. If you're interested in helping the greater Vail area prosper, contact Executive Director, Michelle Harrington by emailing michelle@greatervailchamber.com

Attend the Monthly Membership Breakfasts

You’re invited to our monthly membership breakfast. This breakfast occurs on the 2nd Thursday of the month*. This is your opportunity to meet, network and learn.

Each breakfast starts with casual networking as attendees flow into the room. Once breakfast is served, our President takes the floor to discuss the latest happenings in the chamber and introduce the morning’s sponsor and speaker. No two breakfasts are the same! Sometimes you’ll get to participate in some lively rounds of speed networking, while other times you’ll get to hear from and ask questions of community representatives.

Non-members are welcome to attend**. Pre-registration is appreciated. Breakfast starts at 7 a.m. Members are $15 and Non-Members are $20.  There is an extra $5 fee when you register and pay at the door.

If you would like to sponsor a breakfast or speak, or if you have a recommendation for a breakfast speaker, please email our Program’s Director at programs@greatervailchamber.com.

*The date of monthly breakfast may be subject to change depending on holidays or other contributing factors. Be sure to check our calendar for the most accurate dates and times.

** Non-members may only come to three breakfasts without joining. After that we will gladly give you a membership application and help you find the right membership level for your business.

Host or Attend a Mixer

Each month a different chamber member hosts a mixer at their place of business. This is a relaxed get together giving attendees a chance to socialize and build their chamber relationships while learning about the host’s offerings.

There is no cost to attend these mixers. Attendance is open to anyone interested, giving the host more exposure and more opportunity to reach the Vail community.

For the details and information about our upcoming mixers, please visit the Calendar.

If you are interested in hosting a mixer (available to chamber members only), please email the Program’s Director at programs@greatervailchamber.com with the month you would like to host.

Learn at a Business Power Hour

In an effort to provide your business with the tools it needs to thrive in the Vail community, we have introduced the Business Power Hour.

This monthly event brings in a speaker from around the community to discuss a subject directly relating to your business’s success. This can include marketing support, HR benefits, accounting tips, and more.

The Business Power Hours are held on the third Tuesday of every month at 9 a.m. at Hacienda del Lago. As always, please check the calendar for the most accurate listing. Dates, times and location are subject to change.

The seminars are free to members and $15 for non-members. Pre-registration is appreciated.

If you would like to be a speaker at one of these events (members and non-members are welcome to speak), please contact our Program’s Director at programs@greatervailchamber.com
