AmCham Business Roundtables
AmCham's Business Roundtable luncheons feature high-profile guest speakers from the business community and government who speak on economic and trade issues that impact Kazakhstan, the region, and the global environment. Open only to members , Business Roundtables take place monthly in Almaty and several times per year in Astana and Atyrau. They are attended by 50-100 guests from AmCham member companies and the diplomatic community.
AmCham's monthly Sundowners allow Chamber members and guests to share their experiences, learn about the work of other members, establish relationships that benefit their own businesses, and maintain a sense of community. Fully sponsored by an AmCham member, these monthly cocktail receptions are held at Almaty's most popular restaurants where attendance, often approaching 200, attests to the popularity of the events.
AmCham Achievement Awards
The annual AmCham Awards Dinner in May recognizes member accomplishments and community service in 12 categories during an elegant evening of food, music, and dancing. Hosted at the Rixos Hotel in 2010, the event was given with a Turkish/Asian touch with Middle Eastern jazz, Turkish cuisine, and an Uzbek dance performance.
U.S. Independence Day Celebration
The annual Fourth of July celebration is one of AmCham's liveliest events with hot dogs, burgers, potato salad, and an American flag cake. The event is enlivened by clowns and acrobats for the kids, a lottery featuring airline tickets and holiday packages for adults, and an elaborate firework display at the end of the evening.
American Thanksgiving is celebrated each November with a Thanksgiving buffet, lottery prizes, and a children's program with clowns, games, music, and a special children's menu. This past year, Thanksgiving was attended by nearly 200 members and guests.
