NEW Luncheon Policy

Our Luncheon /RSVP Policy (effective July 11, 2008) is that attendees pre-register for all chamber luncheons, regular monthly luncheons as well as Women In Business luncheons. When you pre-register, we are better able to plan with the restaurants we are dealing with for the right amount of meals. Pre-registration (RSVP) must be done 3 business days prior (Friday noon for a Wednesday luncheon) and walk-ins will not be able to be accommodated. Special dietary needs must be arranged 3 business days prior and will not be accommodated day of event. Some luncheons require earlier response. Fee for regular member luncheon is $25 and non-members are $30 pre-paid. Cancellation and no-shows will be charged $25. Payment will be expected in advance or at the door; no invoicing available. Some luncheons with other groups or special events may have different fees. We do appreciate your consideration and cooperation on this policy. Please call Luanne Newman if you have any further questions on this matter (630) 665-3325.


There are benefits in membership. We know you will find much value from membership in the Carol Stream Chamber of Commerce and hope you will consider joining us. One of the benefits is attending our member events. A non-member who has never been a part of the chamber may visit one luncheon, one After Hours and one Women In Business event. After that, we hope you will know if the Carol Stream Chamber is a good fit for you. Past members should re-join the chamber in order to attend events.
