Throughout the year, Buena Vista Chamber coordinates a number of events for the local and regional business community. Any employee of a member business and members at the Community Level have access to these events. Members of the public may attend some programming for a small fee.

BV Community Coffee

Held the 1st Wednesday of each month, this event provides timely insights for the Buena Vista community featuring elected officials, community and business leaders. Each event is unique, but all events have the common goal of providing a space for communication – Communication between leaders and communication between leaders and our community.

The information and resources gained at these events help our businesses succeed and thrive.
