This committee is responsible for organizing a true highlight of the year. The Annual Gala is designed to celebrate the Kyle Chamber's achievements, our vibrant business community and their accomplishments with an elegant evening of dinner, dancing, and a silent and live auction. There are many opportunities for businesses to participate and highlight their business through a variety of sponsorships, donating auction items, and by purchasing tables.
The Business and Education Committee plays an important role by developing educational opportunities for the business community to grow intellectually and financially in an innovative format. This committee's primary roles are to communicate the link between Chamber services and its members, provide educational workshops and seminars for workforce development and connect local schools with the local workforce.
Whether you're a golfer or not, serving on this committee offers plenty of opportunity to work with a variety of businesses, making new connections and building relationships. One of the largest fundraisers, the Kyle Classic, provides members the opportunity to enjoy a day on the course with business colleagues, clients or prospects, and network with Kyle Chamber leadership, board members and community leaders. Businesses take advantage of the unique marketing opportunities through several levels of sponsorship, interaction with golfers, and advertising; providing an opportunity to show support for the Kyle Chamber and those participating, along with advertisement for their business.
Following policy set by the Board of Directors, this committee is to be the voice for business; monitor, track and act on issues that impact business; advocate on behalf of the business community; promote economic growth and development.
The Kyle-O-Meter Run Committee will plan and execute a health and wellness event, including but not limited to a Kyle-O-Meter 5K. The event will take place in December, and will be an effort to get the community on to a healthy start for the new year.
