"Make it Monday" Forum

For more than 60 years, the “Make it Monday” forum has been providing business with educational opportunities. From industry updates, municipal and government reports, to economic forecasts and new industry outlooks, the Monday Forum covers it all.

More than 40 luncheons are held each year, with attendance ranging from 50 to 200 each week. In addition to new member spotlights, What’s Happening Anchorage episodes, door prizes, updates from the non-profit sector, and reports from the Anchorage School District’s School Business Partnership, the Monday Forum is much more than an educational event. It is member appreciation and recognition.

This weekly event is held from noon to 1 pm on Mondays, commonly at the Dena’ina and Egan Centers. Doors open at 11:30 am for lunch, allowing members a brief opportunity to network. Media is often in attendance, as many presentations are news-worthy topics that affect all Alaskans.

Monday Forum: What to Expect      

Arrive Early
Parking at the Dena'ina Center and Egan Center can take time to coordinate. Leave work a few minutes early to find a good parking spot. Keep in mind -- most downtown parking meters timeout at 1 hour. Check out downtown parking spots before heading to the presentation. Best bets: JCPenney parking garage.

Run of Show
Doors open each week for lunch at 11:30 am and concludes at 1 pm. Please check-in with front desk staff. There are coat racks out front for your convenience. Once inside, ask a staff member to help you find a good seat and direct you to lunch service. Staff will be happy to introduce you to seasoned Monday Forum guests. Presentations begin promptly at Noon.

Attire/ Etiquette
Dress attire for the Monday Forum is business casual. Please, no outside food or drink inside the Monday Forum. Cell phones should be turned to off, silent or vibrate at noon.

Networking
Between 60 to 110 people attend the Monday Forum each week. Bring business cards to hand out to other guests, ensuring maximum business exposure at one of Anchorage's longest-running and popular business luncheons.

Door Prizes

Annual Train Ride

The Chamber Train Ride is a fun way to meet fellow members expand your business network, and build relationships. The Chamber Train is the Anchorage Chamber’s signature networking event, and hosts attendees from small to large businesses alike. The event is essentially a Business After Hours except during the day and your audience is guaranteed to be present and for twice the amount of time: four hours (making it an idyllic time to market!).

The Anchorage Chamber invites you to come aboard the annual Anchorage Chamber Train ride, held from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm, Friday, April 13th on the Alaska Railroad passenger train going south to Indian. This year, we're co-hosting with the Associated General Contractors of Alaska members for a supreme networking event. Activities include casino and networking games, split the pot, a silent auction, karaoke and more!

Last year's theme was such a hit, that we're doing it again - Kentucky Derby! Where your big hats and bowties!
