Get the most out of your Chamber Membership … Participate!
The best way to learn about your Chamber is to get involved in it. Whether you serve or lead a committee, participate in events or serve on your Board of Trustees, active involvement is the best way to learn, gain and serve.
Your Chamber is a very dynamic organization with dozens of committees, sub-committees, task forces or Boards in which to participate. The Chamber could not attempt to do all the work it does on behalf of its members and the business community without the help of its nearly 600 volunteers willing to share their time, passion and interest.
As Chair, I encourage you to look at our list of committees and opportunities to participate that are provided below. We welcome your interest, input and support of your region’s Chamber of Commerce.
Thank you for your membership.
