Annual Golf Tournament
Each fall the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce hosts a Golf Tournament, which
provides opportunities for corporate sponsorship or participation in the event. Participation is an excellent opportunity to exhibit the tremendous quality of life in Dawson County and meet fellow business leaders.
The "Women in Commerce" Leadership Series was created by the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce in 2018. This program is designed to strengthen female business relationships, teach new skills, and provide engaging experiences.
Women In Commerce, WINC, is a five-month series beginning in the summer and ending in October. The program gives women the opportunity to engage deeper in the areas of serenity, adrenaline, creativity, empowerment and wellness.
WINC is a great program for our female members to get together, experience new things and learn a little more about themselves. It's an opportunity for women to take a break from their busy schedules and have fun with other female leaders in our community.
This five-part series runs June - October at different locations once a month.
