Chamber Members Having Fun at Business Events!

 

Annual General Meeting

The Aurora Chamber’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held each fall. Some legislated business such as the Induction of the Board of Directors and the presentation of the last year’s financial statements must take place. The AGM is an excellent opportunity for reflection, networking, looking forward to a positive future, and enjoying good food and beverages.

With over 5,000 visitors, this event will give your business excellent exposure as an exhibitor, sponsor or both! Learn about sponsorship opportunities and exhibitor sign-up.

 

Aurora Chamber Street Festival

The Aurora Chamber Street Festival, held annually the first Sunday in June, is the perfect event for the whole family! Experience street performers, music and over 500 vendors. It’s the family event of the year! There are sponsorship opportunities that will give your business great exposure. It is estimated that over 40,000 people attend this event each year. Application for Vendors and a list of Frequently Asked Questions are available in January each year.

 

Business After Five

Business After Five is an opportunity for informal networking at a member’s place of business. Learn about their business and meet with other members. Refreshments are served by the host company, so please remember to register.

These events should be considered an “open house”, a time to show off your business and facilities to Chamber members and their guests. Only members of the Aurora Chamber of Commerce may host a Business After Five and there could be a waiting list. Please contact the Event Manager for further details at 905-727-7262 or s.watson@aurorachamber.on.ca.
