Events & Programs
Recognizing Area Businesses & Promoting Local Commerce
Each year the chamber sponsors a number of events to recognize businesses and individuals for their contributions to the community. We host the Commerce and Industry Appreciation Dinner, the Agricultural Appreciation Dinner, the Annual Meeting, and the Awards Banquet and Auction. We also present a quarterly Excellence in Business Award. Our largest event each year is our golf tournament, a four-person scramble.
The chamber also coordinates legislative breakfasts, which are held throughout the year with both state and national legislators. Here elected officials are invited to present their views on current affairs.
Special Events / Programs
The chamber also acts as a clearing house for the scheduling of special events. We serve as the official ticket agent for the Miss Missouri Scholarship Pageant
, and many plays, dance recitals, and concerts. Registration forms for the Audrain AgriFest, Sunset Festival, parades, and contests are usually available at the chamber as well.
Red Alert Program: Protecting Mexico Commerce
Members may participate in the Red Alert Program through the chamber. Working with the Mexico Department of Public Safety
, retailers are immediately notified regarding fake, stolen, or lost checks; counterfeit bills; scam artists; and other threats to local commerce. We also act as the Better Business Bureau for the City of Mexico and the surrounding area.
