Committees

Much of the Chamber's work is done through the formation of committees. Paired with a Chamber staff member, each committee is comprised of a variety of individuals from around the business community and falls into one of five categories:

 

Programs
Membership
Operating
Divisions
Subsidiaries

 

We encourage all of our members to become a part of one or more committees and enjoy the benefits of volunteering! Please contact our staff if you are interested in learning more about a specific committee.
