Within Charlevoix and Emmet Counties, three of the Chambers of Commerce hold Chamber Expos. The Charlevoix Chamber and the Petoskey Chamber hold their Expos in the spring, and the Boyne City Chamber holds its Expo in the fall.
What is an expo? A lot of fun. The various companies, organizations and associations within the service area of the specific chamber each have a booth where they display what they have to offer. Additionally, restaurants have booths so that everyone can get a “taste of the north.”
Northern Community Mediation participates in all three of the Chamber Expos
