Committee & Involvement Opportunities
Volunteers are not only necessary to meet the chamber’s mission, but there are also personal benefits in getting involved. They include: developing leadership skills and growing your self-confidence; increasing your circle of business contacts; receiving publicity and recognition; and making a difference in our region. Participating in a committee or being a resource to one has many rewards – see what the Chamber can do for you and what we can do for each other.
