Schuyler Power Hour

Schuyler Power Hours are monthly networking opportunities for Chamber members to meet, mix, and mingle and for prospective Chamber members to get to know our organization. Invaluable connections are made at our mixers and are perfect events to share more about your business with people who may not know you. To invite a prospective member, please contact Abby Lane to make arrangements. Prospective members are invited as the Chamber's guest. Admission for members and member guests is $10 each. Members of the community are welcome with a $20 admission. 

These events are hosted by a different member monthly, each offering a unique look into the variety of businesses available in the Watkins Glen area, and take place on the first Wednesday of the most months, from 5-7 pm. Businesses interested in sponsoring our 2022 lineup of Schuyler Power Hours are encouraged to email our Executive Director Nigar Hale.

The Watkins Glen Area Chamber would like to thank all of the businesses who hosted an after hours mixer in 2021! Please see the 2021 line-up below and enjoy the photo galleries for many of the 2021 events. We know our members and guests had a wonderful time at each of your establishments.
