Chamber Insights: October 2022

As autumn unfolds, the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce continues to create engaging events and programs to support its members and the local business community.

Members of the Chamber had a wonderful time at the September Business After Hours, co-hosted by Williamsburg Jewelers, Anna’s Brick Oven, and Perfectly Natural Soap. This one-of-a-kind Business After Hours featured delicious food from Anna’s, hundreds of dollars’ worth of door prizes and giveaways, music with WMBG Radio, and a complimentary hand scrub station at Perfectly Natural Soap.

The Chamber is looking forward to its next Business After Hours, taking place at Brookdale Chambrel Williamsburg on Thursday, October 20th. Join the Chamber from 5 to 7 PM for networking, drinks, food, raffles, and live music from Tony Ingram. Register for the event on the Chamber website.
