Annual Awards Gala
Held at the beginning of each year, our Annual Awards Gala celebrates everything we did in the previous year. Over a plated dinner and bar, we award some of Stillwater’s best businesses and owners, as well as the Graduation of our Leadership Stillwater class.
This event takes place in March and hosts a new captivating guest speaker each year who shares their success (and failure) stories with our members and inspires them to make a positive change in their own lives.
Walk this May and Walktober
Enjoy these step challenges for the Stillwater community. The Chamber partners with the OSU’s center for healthy living to provide this competition. Each week top steppers and random participants win door prizes from the sponsors.
Lemonade Day is a program we hold each May for Stillwater’s young entrepreneurs! Businesses host kiddo’s lemonade stands all over town helping them learn how to own and start their own business.
Our Legislative Luncheon takes place in June at the end of the Legislative session. Each year we invite a different person from the legislator to share things that came out of the session.
We are dedicated to establishing strong leaders who will help ensure the overall prosperity of Stillwater. Leadership Stillwater identifies potential leaders and prepares them for community involvement and civic leadership by expanding their knowledge of Stillwater. Students serve on a non profit board and contribute to a community service initiative.
The Golf Classic provides and excellent opportunity to entertain clients and prospects in a casual and friendly way. The tournament is two flights of a four man scramble with a shot gun start. Members have the perfect opportunity to connect and have fun on the course. This event takes place in September.
Mayoral State of the City
The Mayoral State of the City allows for Chamber members and community leaders to hear from the City of Stillwater’s Mayor along with other city officials and community experts during this luncheon. We partner with elected officials to ensure our businesses are updated on issues and projects. This event takes place in September.
Each year in November, the Chamber brings together community leaders and businesses to hear from key local, state, and national experts at our Economic Summit. Topics will include economic development issues affecting our state and local government and an economic forecast. Its focus is on small businesses in the area and the entrepreneurial community.
