One of the Chamber's biggest fundraisers is our annual golf tournament. It's a day full of sunshine (mostly!) and fresh air while we have some fun, eat great food, and hope to win one of the many incredible raffle prizes donated by our generous member companies. The proceeds of this event and other events during the year are used to support the Scholarship Program, Career Exploration Day, ship welcome receptions for the Armed Forces Committee, and other worthwhile Chamber programs.
The Business Person of the Year Gala is our signature event to both install our new Board of Directors and celebrate all that our business leaders achieved in the year. Considerations for Business Person of the Year (BPOY) include the nominee’s community involvement and contributions, support for local workforce, and active participation in the Chamber.
The Chamber also presents three new awards, as of 2019, to honor other organizations/businesses in our chamber membership and community. These awards include: Chamber Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year, and Non Profit of the Year.
The BPOY Gala is a celebration to start the year strong with lively music, fun, and celebration for all our Chamber members provide for our economy and our people. Proceeds of the evening will directly support the programs and activities of the Chamber, such as its annual scholarships, educational workshops, employment training seminars, military vessel welcomes, and Saipan Young Professionals activities.
Each year the Chamber hosts a Corporate Challenge event. For many years, it has been a corporate team challenge enjoyed by more than a dozen Chamber member companies. The full day of games, exercises and competitions enhances the team work of each participating company. Sharing barbeque, food, stories and tips is what makes this day extra special. The perpetual trophy and prizes are awarded to the winners at day's end. Proceeds from this event go toward the various programs offered by the Chamber such as the annual college scholarships, the high school workshop, Career Exploration Day, and the monthly training seminars. More information on our programs can be found under the Events and Programs tab.
