Member of the Week

The Member of the Week program showcases one of our members each week. The business will be randomly selected from the previous month's activities.  The member selected will receive a visit from the Chamber staff, certificate of appreciation, spotlight on the Chamber's social media accounts, and will also be showcased in the Portage Press.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies

Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies are a time of celebration for a company. This is the public ceremony to inaugurate the opening of a business. During the ceremony the business owner will typically say a few words and the Greater Portage Chamber of Commerce will also take this opportunity to welcome the business to the community.

MidWeek Mingles

MidWeek Mingles are casual networking opportunities held on the 4th Wednesday of the month. These events are primarily located at Chamber Member restaurants.

At all other luncheons, you will be able to participate in 30 Seconds of Fame. This is an opportunity for you to share an event or promotion. Luncheons are a great way to network with other businesses in the community.
