GC Interns Partnership
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce Internship Program places Greenville College students in Greenville Chamber of Commerce member
businesses. The objective of the program is to provide high quality, local, academic internships for Greenville College students that
are beneficial to Greenville College students and Greenville Chamber of Commerce members.
The internships and co-op programs are designed to integrate academic learning with paid, planned, and supervised work experience. The goal is for students to gain relevant work experience while meeting the needs of the employer. Students may choose to work part or full-time during the academic year or summer session.
Some academic departments require students to complete an internship/co-op related to their academic majors during the senior year. Students earn academic credit for internship and co-op work experiences. The Center for Career & Calling also coordinates the Illinois Cooperative Education Program grant which helps to fund co-op experiences for Illinois resident students who are placed with Illinois employers.

Each Spring, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce coordinates a free Work Fair for area job seekers. Businesses who are hiring (or may be hiring in the future) are welcome to set up an informational booth at no charge. We provide the table and chairs. You provide your own display. Local employers, state and federal agencies, colleges, and military recruiters will participate. Those attending can learn about job openings, hiring procedures, and skills required by local industry and businesses. A series of free workshops are offered throughout the afternoon. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed for success with resumes in hand.
Business After Hours
Don't miss this opportunity to network with other business and community leaders. It's a come-and-go reception from 5-7pm the first Thursday of the month (excluding summer), hosted by a Chamber business (even yours!). This is your chance to not only promote your business but perhaps pick up a new customer. Win door prizes, pick up giveaways, eat great free food. Play the Chamber 50/50 drawing & other Chamber games. Never been to a Business After Hours? Why not join us this month? BAH is open to ALL Chamber members, spouses and other guests.
Early Bird Speaker Series
Introduced in 2015, the "Early Bird" Member Mornings are the fourth Wednesday of every month (except June, July and August) at 7:30 a.m. at Adam Bros. Coffeehouse, 110 S. Second Street. The Early Bird will feature a speaker for 10 to 15 minutes and then time for Chamber members in attendance to share the latest news on their businesses. We'll be done by 8:30 a.m. allowing everyone time to get ready for the work day. Breakfast may be ordered from the Adam Bros. menu.
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce conducts ribbon cuttings for new or relocated businesses or those that have undergone a major expansion/renovation. Chamber membership is not required to host a Ribbon Cutting.
New Faces & Places
Each year the Greenville Chamber of Commerce showcases new businesses during the February "New Faces and Places" breakfast. The program is open to new businesses, those that have expanded or extensively remodeled, are under new ownership, or have new personnel in key positions. Chamber membership is not required for participating.
Signature Community Programs
Gerald Turley Memorial Award
Created in 1994 to honor an outstanding Greenville citizen, the recipient must have demonstrated personal sacrifice, involvement, innovation, and community leadership to promote the success of Greenville. The award was named for Gerald Turley, a former mayor. Nominations are accepted in January/February and the program honoring the year's recipient takes place in April/May.
Cardinals Baseball Lunch
The spring Cardinals Baseball Lunch, featuring an honored guest speaker with a connection to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball organization, is a community outreach program for the Chamber. While the Chamber's focus is supporting our business members, we also see great value in offering opportunities like this to the community.
Holiday Decorating Contest
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce sponsors an annual Holiday Decorating Contest in December for homes and businesses. Displays are judged on a point system in the areas of workmanship, originality, use of color, neatness, and holiday spirit. First, second, and third place winners are awarded in each division and could receive cash prizes and gift certificates to local businesses.
