Signature Events

Crafted around highlighting the success of your business, connecting you to industries to help growth, professional development, member outings and unique ways to infuse your brand with the community.

Chamber Annual Meeting & Dinner

This is a true celebration of growth and success. The January event features awards for outstanding individuals, social time, and an opportunity for members to share in the accomplishments of the past year and goals for the new year. Networking has never tasted so good!

Business Expo

Yearly theme changes makes this a truly interactive expo. Residents come every year to see the outfits and vendor decorations. Every March, the event offers the perfect chance for Chamber members to showcase their products and services to the local public. There is a trade show atmosphere and all 100 booth spaces sell out each year, with lines out the door in the morning.

Business Professionals Day

This is a popular lunchtime event in April with great food, gifts, prizes, and more! A great way to say, “thank you” to your staff for a job well done! A little appreciation goes a long way and this builds team morale and productivity, all under the umbrella of fun and food.

Member Appreciation Day

We couldn’t grow this area without your help. Join your fellow Chamber members for food and gifts at this open house as Richland Area Chamber & Economic Development devotes our attention to you! We know we have terrific members, and we want to make sure you know it, too! Thanks for all you do.

Golf Classic

Nothing better than playing golf at work. Organize your team for a memorable summertime event at a private country club. Food and prizes are plentiful! Show your the best business golf scramble in the area.

Savor and Sip Auction & Food Sampling

Launched in 2015, this fall event gives our area restaurants and caterers a chance to show off their delicious goodies to hundreds of attendees. Think of it like a walking buffet, as attendees have a chance to sample food and drink from local vendors. To enhance the atmosphere even more, you can enjoy local entertainment and bid on great items. Food, fun and great deals are plentiful – you can even donate items to promote your business!
