Hello friends, I hope you are all enjoying the fall weather that is starting to arrive here in our beautiful area. The leaves are turning and falling, and the crisp cool air is bracing and refreshing.

Fall always brings beautiful colors, delicious tastes, and intoxicating smells to the area as well as unique events and happenings. While we still don’t have our return to normal that we were hoping for, we are starting to see more and more events popping up around the community.

Please consider joining our Ambassador Committee and meet with us on October 22nd beginning at 8:00am. Please check the Chamber events calendar for information on the meetings. The Ambassadors play an important part in spreading the Chamber and their mission throughout the community, and we always love to see new faces at our meetings.

The Chamber is happy to invite you all to another business after hours at Emerge Wealth Strategies on October 27th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at their office in Lisle. Full information can be found on the chamber website.

Consider joining the Illinois Chamber and the Lisle Area Chamber on November 5th from 8:30am – 1:30pm at Elements at Water Street in Naperville for the 2021 Women in Business Conference. Registration is available on the chamber website and required for the event.

As always, all of us at the Chamber want to thank you all for your continued partnership throughout these trying times. Rest assured that your Chamber is still working nonstop to promote business and growth throughout our community and working tirelessly to plan events and fundraisers for the 2022 calendar year.

We hope to see you all throughout the community in the upcoming months, and encourage you to get out, get active in the community and join us at an Ambassadors Meeting, Business after Hours, or any other event offered.

Thank you Lisle Eyes to the Skies Committee for the heartfelt love of the community. The volunteer hours you all put forth all year was certainly appreciated. Eyes to the Skies was always the event of the year in Lisle. It put Lisle on the map. We at the Chamber received so many calls about the event, housing, balloons, restaurants, shopping and event information from all over the country. This event supported our local businesses and it will truly be missed. The Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank you for including us in the proceeds through volunteer hours which helped support our high school scholarships given out every year. 

We will be sending out ballots for your 2022 Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors this month. Please vote and return the ballots back to the Chamber.

Have you checked out the Chamber Member-to-Member discount page on our
website lately? Supporting local businesses is important especially now. And if your business would like to be a part of this promotion please send us your discount. There is no charge to post a discount and this is one more benefit of being a Lisle Area Chamber Member.

Happy Fall!
