Waconia Chamber Committees

The Waconia Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer membership organization of businesses working together to make Waconia a great place to live and work. Our committees are a great way to get involved and network with other business people. Committees meet on a limited basis during the planning and coordination for specific events or functions.

Any member in good standing can be on a committee and joining is not limited to the Chamber contact person representing the business—it is open to all employees of the business. If you are interested in joining one of the committees, please contact Kellie at the Chamber of Commerce office.

Ambassador Committee

Ambassadors welcome new business owners to Waconia, providing a personal connection to the Chamber of Commerce. This committee also visits with businesses that have moved to new locations and are under new ownership. They also act as hosts at many Chamber of Commerce functions.
