2017 Chamber Annual Dinner

Celebrate the Past, Prepare for the Future

In 1882 the Greater Green Bay Chamber was founded as the Business Men's Association. This year marks 135 years of prosperity and accomplishments. In 1886 the Business Men's Association petitioned for the first water utility system to be installed in the Green Bay area and they were successful. Today, the Greater Green Bay Chamber has implemented a Greater Green Bay Economic Development Strategic Plan. Attendees will learn more about the accomplishments of the Greater Green Bay Chamber from this past year. 

Members have always been key to the success of the Chamber and its accomplishments. This year we will be recognizing our six longest-standing members: Associated Bank, GLC Minerals LLC, Green Bay Press-Gazette, Johnson Insurance, Sanimax USA LLC, and Wisconsin Public Service Corp.

In the spirit of celebrating the past and preparing for the future, keynote speaker Sonia Aranza, award-winning global diversity and inclusion strategist, will be speaking about Diversity as a competitive Advantage in the workplace.

Presentation of the ATHENA Award will take place during the evening. The ATHENA Award recognizes men and women for excellence in their profession, empowering women, and service to the community. Presentation of the Daniel Whitney Award will go to the Chamber’s outstanding volunteer of the year, as cho­sen by vote of the Chamber staff. And the Outgoing Chairman Award will be presented. 

One does not need to be a member of the Greater Green Bay Chamber to attend this dynamic event.
