Networking Mixers provide the perfect opportunity for business-to-business networking to establish new relationships and business contacts. Mixers are held the second Wednesday of each month and are hosted by various Chamber members at their business. They usually take place from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., however we have recently had a couple of Morning Mixers that take place from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. Attendees are invited to get a first-hand view of the hosts' facilities, products or services. Networking Mixers are a benefit of Chamber membership and are free for members/$25 for prospective members.
The Tradeshow Mixers are held two times a year and replace our monthly mixer. The Tradeshow Mixers are open to everyone in the community and represent a great opportunity to network with local businesses in a fun and interactive setting. Exhibitors showcase their products and services with their table-top displays to hundreds of potential clients in a span of just two hours. Bring your co-workers, invite your friends, these are traditionally our biggest events of the year with great food and drinks, networking and prizes.
The Business and Installation Luncheon, held annually in January, includes the changing of the guard where the new Chairman of the Board and Board of Directors are introduced. The Chamber's priorities for the upcoming year and recognition of its many outstanding volunteer leaders from the year are the focal point of this luncheon.

At the State of the City Luncheon, held annually in February, the elected Mayor of Pleasanton gives an address on city priorities for the upcoming year. This event has a great turnout of elected officials, key city department heads, influential business and community leaders. Members of the Chamber's Circle of Influence are recognized during the program. This event usually draws well over 250 people.

Our Community Service Awards, held annually in March, is a fun-filled evening as the Chamber recognizes those deserving individuals, groups and businesses who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in business, volunteer activities and achievement within the Pleasanton community. The Community Service Awards began in 1963 to recognize good people doing great things in the community and since then hundreds of recipients have been honored. The public is invited to attend this event, beginning with a hosted bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction followed by the awards presentation.
