Networking and Referrals
Historically considered the primary role for Chambers of Commerce, the Greeley Chamber continues to provide multiple opportunities for our investors to meet, get to know, and refer to other investors. We create three or more events each month to strengthen referral relationships and broaden the market base for our investors. Investors attend the lion’s share of our events free of charge. We invite guests who are considering becoming part of the Chamber to join us for a small fee. Check our calendar for the next event that’s perfect for your schedule.
The Greeley Chamber also schedules annual activities to bring its investors together. Our Annual Dinner & Awards in February and our golf outings can present the perfect opportunity for you to capture the attention of other investors.
Networking in Greeley
The Greeley Chamber of Commerce schedules three business connection and referral events for its investors every month. Each activity offers investors the opportunity to meet and mingle with a variety of businesses and individuals to establish referral connections and expand their visibility. Investors attend these events at no charge (with the exception of Biz@Lunch). Click here for a downloadable calendar with all our 2016 dates!

The Greeley Chamber of Commerce counts an abundance of golfers among its investors. The Greeley Chamber’s Annual Prairie Dog Classic Golf Tournament traditionally sells out quickly, Our tournament, scheduled for July 24, 2017 at the Greeley Country Club, offers its 280 golfers a successful day of driving, chipping and putting thanks to our Title Sponsor Ehrlich Toyota, and a multitude of other sponsors,
So, what’s a Chamber to do when so many investors love the game of golf? We host another tournament later in the season, with a few unexpected twists and turns to keep our players entertained. Twenty teams participated in the Inaugural Bogey Open on October 6 — this year’s tournament takes place on Friday, October 5.
For more information about how you can participate in or sponsor the 2017 tournaments, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy a selection of photos from the 2016 Prairie Dog Classic and the Bogey Open.
Annual Dinner & Awards
At the Greeley Chamber, we host annual dinners a bit differently than most chambers.
Yes, we celebrate the past year’s achievements and honor investor businesses and individuals in the community. And, yes, there’s a catered meal for all to enjoy. But, our investors know that an amusing theme will dominate the décor, the program will be condensed, and suggested attire doesn’t include suits and ties.
In 2017, we hosted a northern Colorado’s Mardi Gras on February 23. “Let the Good Times Roll” broke all previous attendance records with nearly 900 Chamber investors and guests in attendance. We applauded our honorees and celebrated the previous year at an event where colorful beads and masks took precedence over suits and ties.
Take a look at a few of our photos to see the great time had by all! Save the date for next year – February 8, 2018. What will our theme inspire you to wear next winter?
