Announcing our new endeavor!
Joint Chamber Lincoln-Way Expo 2020
Inspired by community collaboration, the Mokena and New Lenox Chambers have joined forces for a joint chamber Lincoln-Way Expo on March 14 at Lincoln-Way Central High School.

This event brings business and community together from across the Lincoln-Way region. With representatives from area businesses, organizations, non-profits, and civic groups, the Lincoln-Way Expo is a true community event for the family; it's a one-stop-shop for everything this area has to offer.

In addition to the plethora of exhibitors, other highlights include raffle prizes from area businesses, inflatable jump houses, appearances by princesses and super heroes, massages, health screenings, retail sales, area mascots, concessions and more.

Our chambers share members and we know that residents see the fluidity as well. With a joint expo we are able to better serve the businesses and residents by pooling our resources.

You only need to be a member of ONE of our chambers to get the discounted member rate!
