Celebrating Our Members:
2017 Annual Celebration of Membership
presented by First Secure Community Bank

Thursday, Nov. 16, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Aurora Country Club

This year’s Annual Celebration of Membership will showcase regional employers that have embraced the Connect. Grow. Influence. benefits of Aurora Chamber membership. We want to recognize and share stories that have helped build our community.

Each member of the Aurora Chamber is important – whether a solopreneur or an employer of hundreds. With this diversity, our region remains strong – and a strong community creates more jobs, products, services, and opportunity.

The 2017 Annual Celebration of Membership is sponsored in part by Northwestern Medicine, BMO Harris Bank, Earthmover Credit Union, and Waubonsee Community College.

Please join us for this annual celebration.
