At the Chamber our committees are key in bringing you the programs, services and advocacy we all enjoy and benefit from. The experience, friendships & networks build pride in being part of a team; working to bring professional development and to help grow a strong business community are just a few of the rewards from being part of a committee. We encourage you to reach out and see what you can do.

The Program Committee’s mandate is to initiate, promote and execute business programs and networking events for the benefit of our members.
This Committee is responsible for providing continued networking and business opportunities such as the Business After Hours program and the Breakfast Club. Prosperity, an annual Business-to-Business Tradeshow, provides booth spaces for our members and is open to the general public. The Business Excellence Awards showcase the best of the best in Peterborough and Peterborough County. Both an 18-hole full-service golf tournament and a more casual 9’n Dine Tournament offer good fun and recreation. For
new members, attending your first event will be made less daunting as you’re welcomed by the A-Team, our special ambassadors who can introduce you to people and make you feel comfortable.
The Committee's goal is to continue to enhance the programming and to include more topics and events of interest to our diverse membership base.
