The 2019 Chamber Golf Classic will be held September 27, 2019 at Mirror Lake Golf & Country Club. The Douglas County Chamber Golf Classic is the premier golf event of the year in West Georgia. Each year, a sell-out of more than 250 golfers, over 100 sponsors and 100 volunteers participate in this greatly anticipated event. Complimentary breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages and incredible door prizes are all included in the price.
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!).
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 $750.
Congratulations to our 2019 Award Winners!
