Have you ever wondered how the Chamber accomplishes all the events, projects and programs on our very busy calendar? Much of the credit goes to our incredible volunteers who make it all happen, and you can be a part of the fun and the most positive organization in town! The Chamber Board has set several standing committees; participation with any of them is open to any individual affiliated with a Chamber member or with an individual membership.
The benefits of participating in these committees are bountiful. One of the great values of volunteer service is working with other dynamic, outstanding people in your community. This is a terrific opportunity to learn from other successful people you respect. Watch and learn from their work habits, their leadership skills, their organization skills and ask yourself, "How could I use that in my business?" You may find that volunteer time is, or can be, an ongoing professional development workshop! You learn from others while sharing your talents and expertise with them to improve our town and business climate.
