Get Involved! Committee chairs are always looking for additional members to help them with the various duties and activities associated with their committee. Some of the committees are in charge of key Chamber events and begin planning them months before they happen. Other committees focus on infrastructure and community information.
This committee is made of several locals recruited for their enthusiasm and dedication to assist the Chamber in a variety of tasks from recruiting new members and retaining existing members to coordinating networking events. Ambassadors act as liaisons for the larger Chamber sponsored events and often assist onsite at events like the Business Expo or Chili Cook-Off.
This annual event is executed by the Business Expo Committee who start the planning months before the actual event. The logistics, recruitment of participating businesses and sponsor, and the marketing are all part of this committee’s responsibility.
