      CEO Luncheons

    Every quarter the Chicopee Chamber recognizes a local chief executive officer (CEO) for outstanding participation in vendor development and community activities as well as establishing and building economic equality for local enterprises.

    We originally started this quarterly event as a means to increase corporate involvement with the chamber and to create greater awareness of the many successful and accomplished business owners. Through experience and input of the membership we now work to recognize those individuals who put forth time, energy, and resources for the betterment of the Greater Chicopee community and the inclusion of all the area’s citizenry in the economic mainstream of our great city.

    Next Up: September 7, 2017 - Featuring Nathan Costa of the Springfield Thunderbirds

    Lunch & Learns

    The Learn & Lunch program is a training or development event scheduled during the lunch hours. Our Chamber Lunch & Learns include a lunch to encourage attendance and involvement — after all, we are asking attendees to give up personal time.

    The usual time is 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm (Please note the change in duration to one hour & 15 minutes for our training programs. You are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes earlier to grab a bite to eat and get settled in.) 

    These monthly programs are open to all chamber members and their staff and address broad topics/issues that are relevant to the business community. The schedule is modified as needed to address current topics that arise.
