The Chamber’s committees bring our members together and provides outreach to our community. As a member, working with a committee is a great way to network and meet people.
There is no obligation for a chamber member to serve on a committee – although, committee participation does give members the forum for input and action on issues impacting the business community while providing the opportunity for the member and/or employee to serve as an ambassador of their business.
Below you will find a list of our committees. Please contact the Chamber for more information about becoming involved with one or more of these committees.
