Events Sponsorship Opportunities
Sponsoring events through the McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce gives your business terrific exposure in the community. Your support of Chamber activities says that you are a promoter of the business community and an active participant in the Chamber’s mission. From leadership to public policy, networking to business training…there’s sure to be a perfect fit for your organization’s goals and objectives!
- Annual Awards Dinner – Our premier event, the Chamber’s Annual Awards Dinner begins with a review of the past year’s accomplishments, followed by recognition of the Chamber’s Business and Business Person of the Year and a host of other community awards (all selected by the membership). This is an opportunity for the Chamber to honor outstanding individuals and organizations who have dedicated their time and resources to the Chamber and our community. This event will be held in November. Sponsorships range from Title Sponsor ($2,000) to Table Sponsors ($100).
- Yamhill County Career & College Expo – We bring together high schoolers from all over Yamhill County for a morning filled with a keynote speaker, career breakout sessions, mock interviews and a business/college trade show. The afternoon features a Job Fair open to the public and includes educational workshops for job seekers. There are a wide range of sponsorship opportunities available for this event—something for every budget! Contact - Rhonda Pope, Director of Communication & Events for more information.
- Turkey Rama – Yamhill County’s largest summer festival, Turkey Rama offers something for everyone…from music entertainment to a community sock hop. The 50-year Chamber tradition would not be complete without the Biggest Turkey Contest and Saturday’s Famous Turkey BBQ (grilling over 5 tons of turkey!) Major sponsors share in the advertising for this signature event. Business sponsorships are also available.
