We offer a variety of networking events at the Chamber, including monthly Business After Hours and our annual Chamber Awards Dinner in May. Twice a year we also hold an Economic Forecast to allow community members a chance to share information about the upcoming busy seasons, and each off season we’ll hold a ChamberMaster training session. Scroll through for more details on all of these!
Business After Hours
Business After Hours (BAHs) are a great way to highlight your business while meeting new people and catching up with old friends. BAHs are typically held on Thursday afternoons at 5:30, and they usually last about two hours. Quickly growing in popularity, we generally see 15-30 people at BAHs, depending on the time of year.
The Chamber will pay for an ad in the CB News the day of your BAH, and you will provide drinks and light appetizers. BAHs are free and open to the public. Some businesses have an active social media following and choose to create Facebook events, which the Chamber is happy to share on its own social media, as well.
BAHs are a laid back way to share in the great community we have here in Crested Butte! Email Scott (email@example.com) to start planning your BAH today!
Join us to celebrate another spectacular year in Crested Butte and Mt Crested Butte. This exclusive event is open to Chamber members and their guests only. We’ll honor some deserving local businesses and volunteers, celebrate our successes in the past year, and give out some exciting prizes.
Our 2017 dinner was a blast with local emcee Anthony Poponi hosting and the CB Photo Booth in attendance, as well! Here are some pictures from the night:

Online ticket sales for the 2017 Chamber Awards Dinner have closed, but there are still seats available. You can purchase tickets at the door with cash, card or check ($30/person). We hope to see you there!
Bi-Annual Economic Forecasts
In late spring and late fall, the Chamber provides an opportunity for community entities to share their forecast for the upcoming busy seasons (summer or fall). Our Economic Forecasts are free and open to the public!
Winter Economic Forecast 2017
Crested Butte Mountain Theater
Tuesday, November 14, 5:30-7 PM
Come hear from the towns of Crested Butte and Mt Crested Butte, Gunnison County, the Housing Authority, the CB Nordic Council, the GCB Tourism Association and more! You’ll learn about lodging trends, major winter events, changing tourism markets among other important topics. Presenters will be stationed at booths, and attendees will have ~5 minutes to check in with whomever they’re interested in. Check in with everyone, or duck out once you’ve heard from the presenters you’re interested in.
ChamberMaster Training Sessions
Each spring and fall we’ll hold an evening training session to help you learn more about your ChamberMaster account. Every Chamber member has an account to update and edit your Business Directory listing, contact fellow Chamber members, add and edit events on our calendar and more. These training sessions are free, and refreshments will be provided.
