Committees are a great way to network with other business people. Any member in good standing can be on a committee. Committee membership is not limited to the Chamber contact person representing the business but is open to all employees of the business. Join a committee for the networking! Committees meet on a limited basis during the planning and coordination for specific events or functions.
If you are interested in joining one of the committees, please contact Christine at the Chamber of Commerce office.
