On the third Wednesday of each month, the Chamber holds its General Membership Luncheon. While cancelled during COVID-19 shutdown, we have reinstituted luncheons in July. The locations vary throughout the year, but each luncheon allows for self-introductions, provides updates on Chamber activities, recognizes new members and features a presentation on a subject of value to our members. There's also a raffle with prizes provided by the Business of the Month.
The luncheon begins at 11:45 and always ends by 1.
Cost is $25 for members and $30 for non-members.

July 2020 Luncheon - 2020-21 Board of Directors Installation
On Wednesday July 15 the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce installed its Board of Directors for the 2020-21 fiscal year. We had a wonderfully (socially distant) luncheon to introduce our new board members and officers. We also recognized those who have faithfully served us in the past few years and are off to other endeavors.
A big thank you to Jessica Jensen, who was a founding member of the Parade of Lights 25 years ago and has served our organization for the last 15 years. She is our first Ambassador Emeritus!
Pat Bridges and Jacie Peters are retiring from our board after serving their two terms. We thank them for their service and dedication to the Chamber, we look forward to seeing them at future events.
Dave Brady earned a well deserved thank you for serving as the Board President this past year. It has been a challenging one and he navigated the board through changes in staff and the COVID-19 response. He remains on the board as a director, we thank him for his service.
We are pleased to welcome Natalia Vander Laan to the Board. A member of our community since 2013, Natalia has served on a number of volunteer organizations boards and has been recognized by the state of Nevada for her pro bono legal work. Her professional experience and love of the community will be wonderful additions to the board.
Finally, we want to thank the Carson Valley Inn for hosting our first in-person luncheon since the COVID-19 shutdown. With all the new requirements on businesses to operate under social distancing, we appreciate their efforts to remain in compliance. We helped by wearing our masks and making sure we followed social distancing guidelines.
