  • Put your business front and center by sponsoring a Chamber event, annual program, or digital media.

    New network building events in 2022 include the Battle of the Business Bowling Tournament and the Local Lunch for restaurants.  BE PRO BE PROUD and Connecting Educators in Industry are focused on building the workforce pipeline for our community.  Also new this year are two annual program sponsorships, the Governmental Affairs Committee, and the Chamber Ambassadors, both focused on advocacy for a strong, business friendly climate in our community, county, and state. 

    Or promote your business utilizing the Chamber website, which received more than 145,000 visits in 2021. And don't forget the long running favorites; the Annual Meeting & Business Expo, the Golf Classic, Business After Hours, and the Arkansas Scholars Award Ceremony.






    The Government Affairs Committee works with our elected officials to advocate on behalf of the Van Buren business community to maintain a pro-business climate in our town, county, and state. The committee hosts events exclusively for Chamber members with an elected official as the special guest. Past events have included “Conversation with the Congressman” with special guest Congressman Steve Womack, "Coffee with the Senator" with special guest Senator John Boozman, and forums with our State Legislators to give updates on the 2023 Legislative System.
