People are always asking, “how do I get to know more people and have more of an impact on the business community?” Some want to give back and some want more exposure for their businesses.
Whatever the driver, joining a Chamber committee can make a huge difference in your business. You can:
  • get to know others
  • improve a skill/gain new experience in a desired area
  • give back to your community
  • help shape programming in the community
  • and many other benefits
We have committees that are industry-oriented, cause-based, and interest-centric. Currently, unless otherwise specified all committee meetings are virtual.
