Tailor your Chamber experience, staying involved and informed in areas of interest to their businesses. Involvement in these groups is also a great way to grow professionally and even hone leadership skills. Last but not least, Committees and Councils offer focused networking as you work alongside professionals with common interests. Councils bring together members with a shared industry or business concern. In these groups, members are able to identify trends within their field, participate in Council-specific programming and connect with fellow Council members.
