It's a moment two years in the making: The Chamber's Annual Dinner returns to Monona Terrace on Wednesday, Oct. 20!

Our 68th Annual Dinner will tell the story of our steadfast dedication to solving challenges through coordinated action. And we will welcome a world-class speaker, award-winning psychologist, author and expert on creating extraordinary workplaces to share insights on what it takes to build them: Dr. Ron Friedman.

If you purchase a table, our team will reach out to you with pre-sale wine options. We are thrilled to offer this to limit wait times and add an extra level of convenience and hospitality for our guests.  


To ensure a safe and celebratory event, we require all attendees show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event. Additionally, on-site rapid testing will be available. Please see details including pre-registration instructions below.  

In accordance with Public Health Madison and Dane County Face Covering Emergency Order #3, attendees will be required to wear a mask at this event unless eating or drinking.

If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and seek professional medical guidance.

Attendees may present proof of a negative PCR (polymerase chain reaction) COVID test result to gain entrance as long as the PCR test was taken no sooner than 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 17 (72 hours prior to event start time). As results can take 48-72 hours to receive, we recommend attendees get tested on Monday, October 18.  Click here to find a Dane County testing site near you. 

If the test result is not received in time for the event, rapid testing is available on the day of the event at the Monona Terrace. See details and cost below.
