Annual Chamber Events
Each year the Chamber organizes several Featured Events. For more information on any of the featured events listed below or if you would like to register for any of this year's events, you may go to the Chamber Calendar.
Real Estate Update- March
This annual event offers the opportunity to learn what's upcoming in Real Estate and how developments will affect businesses and the community at large. The event is set up with morning networking and light refreshments. An exhibitors area is a perfect place to network and peruse the offerings of your fellow businesses. The event continues with a guest speaker or speakers or a panel presenation or a combination of the above. It's a great morning, usually held at long-time Chamber Member, Roundhouse Theatre.
The Big Event- April
This first of its kind networking event connects hundreds of the area's influencers and decision makers, including those from large corporations and incubators and small start-ups. It is a fabulous opportunity to indulge the senses with an array of "best of" tastes from area restaurants, music from our the area's top talent and 21st Century networking concepts to help business executives "link bigger and better," both face-to-face and online.
Golf Classic- May
Each May, over 100 decision makers and business professionals enjoy a day away from the office by participating in the Greater Bethesda Chamber's Annual Monument Bank Golf Classic. This day of networking and competitive fun is a much anticipated event each year. Many non-golfers also attend the awards banquet to celebrate the day’s winners and enjoy the presentation to the year’s chosen non-profit recipient. We are pleased that each year a portion of the proceeds benefit a Greater Bethesda Chamber member non-profit as designated by Monument Bank. We hope you will join us in May as a sponsor and /or player and be a part of this year’s Monument Bank Golf Classic.
Senior Market Breakfast- May
This is an annual May event usually held at long time Chamber Member, Maggiano's Little Itlay. The event brings together a wide variety of businesses who offer services to the Senior Market. They get together each year to network and share and expand their marketing ideas regarding this most untapped demographic.
We have welcomed a variety of speakers, including:
* Dr. Bill Thomas
* Steve Gurney, Founder of ProAging Network
* Timothy Mack, President of The World Future Society.
Installation and Awards Event- June
Each June we celebrate the previous year's successes and welcome the next Fiscal Year's Chamber Leadership. Join regional businesses, government and community leaders for the Annual Installation and Awards Event. This event features the induction of the Chairman of The Board Of Directors and new Board members, while saying thank you to those who have served. The event also honors the best of local commerce, as well as outstanding citizens who have worked tirelessly to make Bethesda a better place to live, work, and do business.
Legislative Event- October
