Get Involved in Committees
Based on our annual Plan of Action, each member has a chance to become a Chamber Committee Member by volunteering on one or more of our Leadership Board Committees. The annual plan of work is organized into four (4) Committees: Leadership/Education; Legislative; Membership; Programming. These four (4) Committees provide participants with an excellent opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with other community leaders who could become prospective new clients and/or business associates.

Business After Hours
This is a great opportunity to gather in a low pressure setting for fun and making new business contacts. Chamber members tend to do business with and promote fellow Chamber members. If they don’t know you they can’t promote your business. We also have Business Before Hours for the early birds out there. These events are open to the public and are hosted by Chamber Members.
Your Chamber Membership Investment is gratefully acknowledged and appreciated! Networking with fellow Chamber Members is one of the best investments you can make for professional success!
