Business After Hours/Business Before Hours
The Chamber, along with a participating business hold a Business After Hours (BAH) on the third Wednesday of the month. This is a great way to showcase your business and to network with other professionals in the community. The Business Before Hours (BBH) are held less frequently, but allow a different take on networking for those businesses who want to try something different.
Normally held 6 times per year, on odd numbered months, the Breakfast Network (BN) allows the Chamber to bring programming to Chamber Members and the community.
The Chamber of Commerce receives dozens of phone calls and visitors per week. Chamber Members are always promoted first when asked about local businesses, restaurants and other services.

The Community Guide and Map are published on alternate years and they are distributed directly to households in Beaver Dam via mail. Additional copies are available at the Chamber and are also distributed throughout the area to businesses and throughout the state to travel centers.
