The main focus of the Membership Committee is to help recruit new members into the Chamber, from prospecting, developing outreach strategies, and implementing a strategic plan for Chamber development.

An important goal of the Chamber is to represent a range of industries and companies so membership remains valuable to members of all types.  This committee provides feedback on Chamber programs to ensure that they remain of the highest benefit to members. Members of this committee are encouraged to attend as many events as possible and to bring prospects as guests to show community members first-hand the benefits of Chamber membership.
