Annual Banquet

This year’s Chamber Annual Banquet will be held on Wednesday, October 19th at the Meridian Center from 6:00-9:00 PM. It will start off with a Social Hour at 6:00 PM and the banquet meal and program will begin at 7:00 PM.

The Chamber Annual Banquet celebrates the start of our new year. Chamber members can enjoy dinner, hear from a keynote speaker, and help in celebrating special recognition of fellow members. It is a great opportunity for us to look back at the past year and the impact that our network of local businesses has made in the Newton area. One of the highlights of this event is the announcement of the Outstanding Citizen Award.

This year’s speaker will be Charlie Moon. Charlie consults on strategy primarily with professional services organizations to increase revenue and decrease drama. He is the author of “How to Turn Order Takers Into Rainmakers.” Charlie believes a person can do the undoable with the right “people” “plan” and “process”.

Cost to attend is $45 per person. You can register to attend online here, or you can contact Rachael Gibbons at
