Our Annual Dinner is a celebration of our members and our accomplishments. We make business happen. “

Their publications and website are go-to resources for business and community information. The Chamber offers over 200 networking opportunities each year and manages large community events such as the Family Expo, Uncork Barrington, Barrington Wine Walks, Barrington Area Economic Summit, Town Hall Forum and more. Each year they field over 6,000 calls for local business and community information.
The BACC Annual Dinner & Scholarship Fundraiser attracts nearly 200 business, community and governmental leaders for a celebration of business and community achievements. Tickets to the event are $50 per member/$65 per guest, and can be purchased online at www.BarringtonChamber.com.
