The Membership Committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 4:00 pm in the Chamber Office.

Mission Statement

The Membership Outreach Committee will be the Ambassadors between the Chamber and its members and in so doing will seek to inform members about Chamber activities, identify any concerns members have about the Chamber, and identify the challenges they face.  Further, the Committee will seek to be a catalyst for creating new programs and activities that can be tailored to the needs of individual members.
