One of our main focuses at the Sebring Chamber is to provide excellent networking opportunities for our members. Promoting that perfect environment for interacting with other business owners and potential customers is our goal, and we look forward to seeing you at all of our signature events.
Monthly Networking Luncheons
Our luncheons are typically held on the second Thursday of each month, and are usually held at the Island View Restaurant at the Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club beginning at 11:30 A.M. Entry to the luncheon is $10 per person, which includes your meal and drink. At these luncheons there will be a keynote speaker, which is the sponsor for that event. As a Chamber member, you’ll also have an opportunity to spread the word about your business by making an announcement during the member announcement time. We call this your “30 second commercial”. Members are also welcome to bring brochures or flyers regarding your organization to place on the info table.
Monthly After-Hours Mixers
Our mixers are typically held on the third Thursday of each month from 5-7 P.M., and are held at various locations throughout the area. Each month a Chamber member will host the mixers, giving them a chance to show off their facility and provide a prime location for Chamber members to interact. The mixers give our members the opportunities to mix and mingle with one another in a fun and casual atmosphere, which is ideal for networking. Don’t forget to bring your business cards for a chance to win some door prizes!
Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony
Our end of the fiscal year celebration, this event is the Sebring Chamber’s way of honoring the yearly accomplishments of our member businesses, volunteers, ambassadors, and Board of Directors. This is our BIGGEST event of the year, and you won’t want to miss it!
This year’s banquet to celebrate the 2017 year’s accomplishments will be held on January 25, 2018 at the Island View Restaurant.
Spring Golf Classic
What better place to network than at one of the best offices out there—the golf course! Test your golf skills at our annual classic golf tournament, held at the Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club each spring. The 4 person scramble gives players a chance to win great cash payouts, and the raffle prizes are known to be phenomenal. Add that in with hole-in-one, closest to the pin, and longest drive contests, you’ve got yourself a recipe for a great day out!
Alan Jay Automotive Network & Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Luncheon
Designed to act as an endowment, this fund was developed by Alan Jay Wildstein and the Alan Jay Automotive Network. When a Sebring student is presented with the “Student of the Month” award at their high school, they become eligible for this scholarship. These students are interviewed by a panels of judges, and the winners are announced at a luncheon, held at the end of each school year. At the awards luncheon, Chamber members come together to donate to the scholarship fund, and Alan graciously matches what’s raised at the event (and sometimes even double matches!). Scholarship amounts vary based on the monies raised at the luncheons in the prior years. In many years, more than one scholarship was given.
This event is normally held in late May of each year. Specific date for 2017- TDB
Sizzlin’ Summer Spin ‘N Win
The Sizzlin Summer Spin ‘N Win is a fun, casual party where participants can win lots of great prizes, all while networking with other Chamber members. Feeling lucky? Then get some tokens and try your luck on the prize drawings, which have previously included prizes like vacations, VIP concert tickets, excursions for the family, spa packages, golf packages, and more! You won’t want to miss this summer event.
This event is normally held during the last week of July. This year's event will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2016 at 6pm at Island View Restaurant.
