Chamber Committees

Committees are a great way to take full advantage of your Chamber membership. These focused groups are where most of the behind-the-scenes work of the Chamber happens. Committee members get to act as decision makers of the programmatic functions of the Chamber that affect real change in the community.

Chamber Meetings are held in February, April, June, September, and November unless otherwise specified. All meetings take place at the Chamber Office and via Zoom. These meetings are open to Chamber members only.

Your Chamber membership investment includes all of the team members associated with your business/organization.  Engaging in these committees as your schedule allows is an excellent way to take advantage of your membership. As an added benefit to you, the Chamber provides opportunities for you to invest in your and your employees' professional development and overall workplace engagement. This is an excellent way to fully leverage your membership investment for the benefit of all!
