The Douglas County Chamber Winter Ball is the “don’t miss” event that jump-starts our new calendar year.
The Winter Ball marks the changing of the guard for the Chamber’s Chairman of the Board, and it also gives us the opportunity to recognize Douglas County’s Citizen of the Year, The Sam P. Roberts Community Service Award, Small Business of the Year, Large Business of the Year, Diplomat of the Year, Young Professional of the Year, and the Chamber Chairman’s Award.
The Winter Ball is also well known for the delicious food, silent and live auction items, and extraordinary entertainment. A table of 10 at the Winter Ball is $1,250 and sponsorships start at $1,500.
Congratulations to our 2017 Award Winners!
Introducing the DC Chamber’s newest signature event – Chicks Night Out! This Women’s Expo will be held in the Spring from 6:30 – 9:30 pm at the Douglasville Conference Center and the focus was all about women.

The event kick offs with a fashion show in the auditorium, a limited number of sponsor and exhibitor booths in the ballroom, heavy hor d’oeuvres, a complimentary signature drink and cash bar, a DJ, and designer cupcakes.
Pre-purchased tickets are $35. Tickets purchased at the door will be $50. Ticketed attendees experienced interactive exhibits – including chair massages, make up demos, photo booths, mini manicures and giveaways at each booth. In addition, each attendee received a SWAG bag and Chicks Night Out shirt.

Registration is $35 for each team of two. In addition to the Cornhole Tournament, food
and drinks are available for purchase for those attending. For added enjoyment, there will be live music to enjoy and a raffle for a set of boards from West GA Cornhole.

Each October, Chamber Member businesses receive a “Big Thank You” from the Douglas County Chamber – our Member Appreciation Month. Our Board Members, Diplomats, and Chamber Staff go door-to-door visiting member businesses to learn how to better serve our members. We want our members to be educated on ways to get connected in our community and the Chamber. The more engaged our Chamber members are in training, seminars, networking events, and committees, the more opportunities they have to translate their membership into more business.
Each October, the Douglas County Chamber Board of Directors and staff fire up the grills, pull out the tables and work together to hold an event that celebrates our members – the Member Appreciation Cookout! This event is free for all of our members and their employees. This is a simple way for us to say thank you for being a member. Join us on October 31st from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. – costumes are welcome (we will be in ours!).
