Career Day

Every year, area 9th grade students spend a half day at the Branch Area Careers Center exploring three different career areas of their choice. 

This event is a collaborative effort between the schools, Branch Intermediate School District and the Chamber of Commerce. 

Last year, over 75 businesses professionals presented to over 400 students.

The Chamber finds this is an excellent venue to showcase the diverse opportunities available right here in our area.

Decoration Auction

Chamber members are asked to donate holiday decorations which are then auctioned off at the November After Business Hours.

The Chamber’s Decoration Auction is a popular and fun event that helps raise money for the Chamber and local food pantries.

This event is the most fun scramble of the golf season. The Chamber of Commerce’s Golf Scramble is guaranteed to be a relaxing and enjoyable day on the course! 

Members can participate in several ways, not only can they play in the scramble, but they can sponsor golf holes and donate door prizes to promote their business to over a hundred people in one day!
