The Norman Chamber strives to present meaningful, educational and fun events to the membership. Chamber events include the Annual Auction, Annual Banquet, quarterly Lunch and Learns, quarterly Women's Leadership events, legislative events, General Membership Meetings, and more.
The annual Auction, held in the fall, is the Chamber’s one and only FUNdraiser. The annual Banquet is the ‘changing of the guard’ for the Chamber’s Chairman of the Board. This event also celebrates the business community’s accomplishments and honors outstanding members and volunteers with an awards ceremony.
Lunch and Learns, Women’s Leadership events, and General Membership Meetings are quarterly events covering a wide range of topics to educate the Chamber membership.
Legislative events focus on policy issues on the municipal, county, state and federal levels.
Norman's Young Professional group, Norman NEXT, also falls in this area. Norman NEXT is an organization for young professionals, 21-40 years of age, working or living in Norman, OK.
NEXT’s mission is to develop the next generation of leaders for Norman by creating a connected, active and engaged community of young professionals. Through leadership, mentoring, networking and volunteerism, Norman NEXT cultivates and inspires young professionals to BE A POSITIVE agent of change for Norman.
The organization was launched in April 2008 following an annual Chamber board retreat.
