In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

Our Town Government: How It Works, How to Get Involved
March 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
One event on March 28, 2018 at 7:00pm
New Canaan has tough decisions to make every day, decisions that affect our schools and neighbors, property values and downtown. While the results of local political decisions are often immediate, our elected and appointed public servants work within a framework that few of us fully understand. Join us for a clear, concise presentation that breaks down how things get done in New Canaan and how we all can be involved. Attend a daytime or evening session to learn about:
• Town government’s “family tree,” including elected and appointed boards and committees
• Roles, responsibilities, and terms of service
• Procedures for getting involved
This program is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of New Canaan, a nonpartisan political organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government.
Two Sessions will be held 10:00 am and 7:00 pm
