The Chamber is committed to advancing the conversation when it comes to business growth and community development.  It just so happens that this event attracts a number of elected officials who want to hear from you about how to create a magnetic community. 

Politics & Pints connects members with elected officials from across the political spectrum in an atmosphere that promotes conversation and networking. Since the inception of Politics & Pints, the Chamber has worked to bring together a mix of individuals who wish to engage in the political process and the policy discussions facing our community, region, and state.  

On average, 100 attendees are able to interact with 20 elected officials from all levels of government at the events.  

Enjoy cocktails and conversation about what’s hot in business, community, and politics. Whether you are a young entrepreneur or a savvy business executive, we bet you’ll have a good time.

"Hosting a Chamber of Commerce 'Politics and Pints' event worked out really great for us at The Meanwhile. The bar was packed, the conversation interesting, and the mix of folks really fascinating. The Chamber staff was super organized and we had some first time customers we're sure will return!"
