Programs and Events
The Chamber is proud to host a number of events and programs for our members and the community. Involvement in our Chamber programs is a great way to further your professional network, take part in your community and grow professionally.
On the 1st Thursday of every month from 7:30 - 9:00 AM, we host our Chamber Connections meeting at a local business. This is a lightly structured networking meeting where each attendee will give a 30-second infomercial about their business and what they do. We bring in additional business resources to educate our members on different ways they can support their businesses. Please contact Stacy Jacobs for more information.
The Katy Area Chamber hosts a luncheon on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM. These events give our members the opportunity to connect with other businesses and learn about the topics that are presented. These topics are of interest to the business community, including updates about local, regional, and state government, Katy ISD, economic development, and additional business resources.
Business After Hours
Hosted by Chamber members on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, these events are FREE to attend. Hosts generally provide refreshments and door prizes. Attendees are welcome to drop in any time during the two-hour event. Explore new businesses and get engaged with other like-minded business professionals. If you're interested in hosting a Business After Hours, please contact Ashley DeWispelaere.
Lunch Bunch is hosted on the 1st Tuesday of each month from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM. This event brings members together at one of various Member Restaurants for delightful lunch conversation and networking. This is our way of supporting our local restaurants.
