Annual golf outing

Join us for organized golf fun with current Chamber members and their guests. Each foursome includes a round of golf and cart as well as lunch and FUN player's gifts. Snacks and beverages will be available on the course throughout the day. Participants are invited back to the clubhouse for dinner and awards to conclude the day. In 2023 we launched a golf clinic – the perfect opportunity for new-to-golf players interested in learning the game and gaining the benefits of doing business on the green. Each outing rotates between current course members.

Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting is one of the Chamber’s signature events; it is a time to reflect on the work of the past year and the exciting opportunities that remain ahead for the organization and the business community at large. The chamber, along with community and business partners, will continue to lead the region forward in implementing the goals outlined in Erie Forward, our five-year economic development initiative. It is also a time for us to conduct the business of our business. As the voting member for your organization, your participation strengthens the voice of our business community. Each year we also take an opportunity to learn from a keynote speaker on important issues, trending topics, and other timely information.

Celebration of excellence

Celebration of Excellence continues the tradition of honoring businesses that demonstrate a commitment to progress without a long, drawn-out program or agenda. Instead, we'll gather together for inspiring conversations while enjoying delectable food, the coldest drinks to quench any thirst, live music all the while toasting the award winners who continue to help shape our resilient community.


The National Civics Bee is an initiative aimed at encouraging more young Americans to engage in civics and contribute to their communities. Organized in partnership with The Civic Trust of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the competition in Erie will inspire middle schoolers to become better informed about American democracy, to engage respectfully and constructively in the community, and to build greater trust in others and institutions. Middle school students from public, private, charter, and home schools are invited to take part in the first-round civics essay competition, second-round live local competition, and the top finalist moves on to represent Erie on the state stage alongside middle schoolers from across the Commonwealth.
