By joining committees and participating in committee activities our members continually expand their business opportunities by meeting new people, widening their business networks and raising their visibility. Our committees comprise hundreds of business people – from entrepreneurs and small business owners to professionals within Fortune 100 corporations – each attending meetings and events in order to connect with fellow members.

Committee members strengthen skills they do not always practice in their workplace, such as networking and the art of referrals, and develop teamwork and event planning proficiencies when they join subcommittees. They also discover ways to give back to the community and the chamber. While simply attending offers many rewards, volunteering multiplies those returns.

Finally, our committee members play an integral role in driving the chamber. By contributing their business knowledge and acumen they help shape both our committees and the chamber as a whole, with many of the initiatives developed at the committee level becoming signature events and programs for the entire chamber – allowing us to better reflect and serve the business community.
