The Chamber provides many networking opportunities for the business community. See a more complete list and description of Chamber Networking Opportunities.
The Fennimore Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee welcomes new businesses with a ribbon cutting. As part of the welcome to the community, the chamber gives complimentary chamber membership to the business for the remainder of the year. Photos are taken and business information is published in the Fennimore Times and the Chamber e-newsletter. New business owners should contact Promotions Coordinator, Linda Parrish at 608-822-3599. (See more about the Chamber Ambassadors.)
Chamber Business Showcase (formerly Business After Hours) is a social activity hosted by Fennimore Chamber member businesses as a way to introduce and highlight the goods and services they offer. Chamber members and their employees are encouraged to attend the Business Showcase for a few minutes or for the entire event. Only one Business Showcase is scheduled per month, except December when the Chamber’s holiday party is held. Chamber members who would like to host should contact Promotions Coordinator Linda Parrish, 608-822-3599.
Business Seminar 2016
James Schneider, owner of Blue Chip Training and Marketing, was the Chamber’s featured motivational speaker at the Business Seminar on Feb. 25 2016. James’ presentation was “Getting Down to Brass Tacks – Old Ideas for New Opportunities.” James shared ideas about practical steps to build a Better Community – Better Business – Better You! Chamber President Rick Nelson is shown with James Schneider. Twelve businesses were represented at the workshop with 40 in attendance.
The CARE committee (Chamber Associates Recognizing Each Other) visits chamber member businesses who are celebrating a milestone anniversary or event, a new manager of the business or the offering of a new product line. Members visit the business for a photo that will be printed in the Chamber Newsletter which is published in the Fennimore Times.

Chamber members are encouraged to be as involved as much as they choose. Standing committee members are needed in a variety of ways. Share your talents and skills while meeting and networking with other businesses. If you would like to volunteer to be actively involved in any of standing committees please contact the Promotions Coordinator – Linda Parrish, 850 Lincoln Avenue, 608-822-3599 or firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the Committee Chairs.
