There are several Chamber committees, taskforces, and interest groups that promote advocacy, policy change, networking, and tourism. These groups consist of other business professionals who are concerned with similar issues in categories such as: education, economy, tourism, public policy, membership and supporting local business.
Committee involvement is entirely voluntary. The Chamber encourages members to sit in at any of the monthly meetings to determine if there is a good match of interests.
