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

Of those 68 vendors, 10 provided delicious food: American Spoon Foods, Bridge Street Tap Room, French Quarter New Orleans Bistro, Harwood Gold Cafe, Morning Dew Cafe, Sage at the Odawa Casino, Pigs Eatin’ Ribs, Smoke on the Water, Stafford’s Weathervane, and La Cantina.
Over 550 people attended the event in addition to all of the people who represented their companies and organizations. It was definitely a worthwhile event

On Thursday, April 19, 2018, the Petoskey Chamber of Commerce held its annual Chamber Expo from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at the Odawa Casino in Petoskey. Over 75 vendors participated. And, there was delicious food from numerous restaurants in the area.
As always, Northern Community Mediation had a booth at the Expo. This gave the staff an opportunity to promote NCM, socialize with community members, and in general, have a very pleasant evening. NCM gave away a floral arrangement as a door prize.
