As a nonprofit agency, we could not survive without the dedication of our volunteers and their tireless efforts. It is important to be very organized and to outline some general responsibilities of Chamber volunteers. Please read our pledge and then answer the next question indicating your agreement. 

Committee Member's Pledge:
  • I am fully committed and dedicated to the mission, purpose, and goals of the Chamber.
  • As a volunteer, I understand I will serve without compensation.
  • I can commit to fulfilling my obligations with my time, talent, treasure, and relationships.
  • I will avoid conflicts of interest between my position on a committee and my personal life or business.  If such conflict does arise, I will declare that conflict to the Chamber staff.
  • I promise to make decisions that are always in the best interest of the Chamber.
  • I will attend regularly scheduled meetings, be available for consultation by phone and e-mail
  • If I miss more than 3 consecutive committee meetings without proper notice or am otherwise unable to fulfill my obligations, I will offer my resignation or request a leave of absence.

  • I recognize the significant obligations of the staff in carrying out the work of the Chamber, and I will do my best not to interfere with the staff’s operating and oversight responsibilities.  While I have the right to speak with staff members about matters of mutual interest, I understand that I do not have the right to direct the actions of staff members.
