A PLACE TO BELONG
The Canyon Lake Chapter of the Chamber of Commerce provides members a venue for mingling with fellow vendors, exploring commonalities, evaluating problems, and being part of the community at large. Plaques presented to each affiliate of our Chamber and displayed prominently at places of business confirm active community involvement. Members participate annually in selecting our board and honoring exceptional involvement via businesses and citizens of the year awards.
A VOICE IN THE LEGISLATURE
We keep an eye on commerce friendly legislation, watch how our national, state and local representatives vote, and call attention to elected and appointed local and state officials who are pro-business. With your support we are one voice in important places on issues that impact you!
Our Chamber Office Coordinator fields thousands of phone calls annually seeking information regarding jobs and services – for which she promotes Chamber members. The office displays news of upcoming events and educational materials.
Along with awards to businesses cited for exceptional service, we honor citizens who reflect the best of our community’s integrity and volunteerism. We encourage residents to shop here first, keep Canyon Lake dollars in Canyon Lake.
Opportunities to become involved abound among our task forces and projects. Along with our Ambassadors, our chapter is selectively focusing on national, state, and local legislative actions impacting small businesses. Other volunteers are active with Business Development, Membership, Programs, Awards, Fund Raising, Events, Promotions, Scholarship, and Administrative and Liaison groups.
EVENTS and FUND RAISERS
Vendors showcase their goods and/or services via our popular, informal monthly mixers. Annually we sponsor our Awards Dinner, spring’s golf tournament, Oktoberfest and the Halloween’s Parade of Frights . And as occasions dictate, we love ground breakings and ribbon cuttings welcoming new commerce to Canyon Lake.
