After Hours events are held on the second Wednesday of each month, starting in February and ending in November. The events start at 6:00 P.M. and usually end no later than 7:30 P.M.
Upon arriving, attendees visit the sign-in table to receive a name tag. Everyone is encouraged to bring business cards to assist with networking. There will be introductions at the start of the event, giving everyone a chance to talk about their business and latest news, followed by food, fun, and of course, networking!
Visitors: Those joining us as a non-member guest are welcome to come to one event to see what the Chamber is all about. You'll be given an application to take home with you during your visit. If you have been to an after-hours event and would like to come to another, membership is required.
Attention Members: Network with colleagues from the Banner Elk, Beech and Avery Chambers at this mega After Hours event to be held at Eagles Nest's Great Camp on Tuesday, June 15th.
BUSINESS AFTER HOURS RETURN FOR 2021!
Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours is a networking event designed to promote your business and build connections with other area business leaders. The sponsoring business hosts the event by opening its doors for Chamber members and offering a behind-the-scenes look at its operation.
As a sponsor of Business After Hours, it is the host’s responsibility to offer appetizers and refreshments as well as one or more door prizes. Hosts plan on refreshments and beverages for approximately 50 people. 2021 After Hours take place the second Wednesday night of the month, July through December, from 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM.
In June the Banner Elk Chamber will join other area chambers at a Mega After Hours Event at the Lodges at Eagles Nest.
Sponsoring a Business After Hours is an excellent way to showcase your facilities and services to chamber members and prospective members and sends a clear message that you are invested in the community.

Calling all kids! Mail your letters to Santa this year at the special mailbox located out front of the Chamber starting December 1st!
In light of the surging cases of COVID-19, the Board has decided to minimize crowd events for the holiday season. As a result, the Chamber is hosting only the Annual Christmas Tree Festival and the Letters to Santa Mailbox at the Chamber Visitor Center this year. Learn more about the Chamber's Small Town Christmas. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to returning to the full slate of festive holiday events next year!
