Each year we have several working committees assisting our staff in delivering the many programs and services we provide our members. Our committees are made up of fellow chamber members who volunteer their time and efforts to make this organization stronger. If you are interested in participating on a committee, please either contact the Committee Chair directly or any Chamber staff member.
This committee coordinates our Chamber Meet & Greet networking events in cooperation with the Chamber staff and host business. These volunteers are often the first to welcome new members into the Chamber and provide guidance on the best ways to get involved in our business community, build relationships and introduce many of the opportunities that Chamber membership offers.
Chair - Donna Harris, Bank of NH
These volunteer members are responsible for the review, development and overall implementation of the Chamber's Financial Plan. This committee is led by the current Treasurer, and the members are selected from among the current Board of Directors and membership.
Chair: Penny Raby, Malone, Dirubbo & Co.

Members of this committee are comprised of representatives from each of the other committees and are strategic in ensuring the success of our events.
