Bay Area Chamber logo

A few weeks ago, we talked about how you can make a difference in our local business climate by working on one of your chamber’s teams. We didn’t get through all the opportunities at that time, so let me introduce you to more of them.

Marketing and communication — this team reviews and revises all means of communication, to include website, social media, press releases, radio, cable and others to ensure that our message gets out successfully.

Membership development — works on recruiting new businesses to our team, while developing personal contact opportunities for all members, and reinforcing the value and benefits of membership to maintain a strong and viable organization.

Education — provides support to our local schools so they have the resources to help students achieve their dreams and become productive adults, by improving communication with business community, monitoring school performance, recognizing excellence, exposing students to careers and job opportunities and enhancing facilities.

Tourism — Takes a leadership role in developing and improving tourism partnerships and communications on all levels. They provide ideas, resources and programs to support both new and expanding tourism based businesses.

Events — their mission is to plan and coordinate fundraising events that benefit the chamber. They are actively involved in every aspect of making each activity a social and financial success.

Chamber members can be part of any of these teams. In fact that is the only way we are successful. So give us a call and we will set you up.

Remember our business is helping your business. And like us on Facebook.
