Our monthly and annual networking events were created to provide unique opportunities for members to meet and talk with other business owners and professionals. Quite often, these connections lead to potential new customers! Networking and relationship marketing are important practices and methods for every business – small to large. Here in Yates County, relationship building from business to business and helping each other out are on the forefront.

Monthly Business After Hours

These casual social gatherings allow members of the business community to meet, exchange ideas, and catch up in a more relaxed and informal setting at various businesses within the county. Hosting a BAH also allows the hosting business an opportunity to showcase their workplace, products or services and gain extra marketing exposure. Interested in hosting? Contact us for openings. Business After Hours takes place the second Wednesday of each month from 5:00-7:00pm.


Councils and Committees

Active involvement in our various Councils and Committees provides members with the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to our community and builds invaluable leadership skills.

The Chamber is comprised of a Board of Directors made up of at least fourteen community leaders. The organization is divided into the following three councils: Economic Development Council (Tourism Committee; Industrial Committee; Workforce Development; Penn Yan Business Association), Community Development Council (Government Action Committee; Community Involvement Committee), and the Organizational Development Council (Membership Committee; Long Range Planning Committee).
