CALL FOR PRESENTERS

We are looking for members to share their expertise and get our Business Exchange program up and running.

Workshops & Seminars to help your business grow.

There is a wealth of experience and expertise in our business community. Our Business Exchange program connects a diverse audience to interactive workshops and seminars led by our member business community. 

Each session offers guidance and advice from experts in their field. Attendees walk away with new contacts, knowledge and skills they can bring to their organization.

These workshops are free or discounted for Lake Champlain Chamber members. Those interested in exploring a topic more in depth, might consider pursuing one of the designated tracks. Those who complete a track will earn a certificate of completion.

Courses and track announcements coming Spring 2022
