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 Business After Hours and Business Before Hours events in cooperation with the Chamber staff. This committee also welcomes our newest members into the Chamber and works on getting members involved. They meet on a monthly basis.
