The Special Events Committee meets monthly to discuss opportunities and form sub committees for fundraising to support the Chambers efforts in supporting, advocating and providing business services to the membership and the business community at large. This is made possible by providing several events annually to introduce potential members to the Chamber of Commerce to fun and social events where the membership can network and socialize in an environment, which is beneficial. The Committee(s) discusses these opportunities, which may come from peer to peer recommendations, established annual events, or new event proposals. The committee(s) and chair(s) recommend a plan of action to the President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce for each event, which is then conveyed to the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for action.
Committee members should be engaged and interested in producing events to raise funds to support the Chamber and its membership and are passionate about participating in the process, which enables the enterprise to provide and advocate to a greater extent for its membership and the business community.
Committee members may be asked to volunteer their time to assist in setting up events, marketing events, and procuring sponsorship for events. Also, attending sponsored functions sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce such seminars, luncheons, coffees and breakfasts where the speaker or program may be provided by the committee to show your support for growing Chamber membership and its benefits. You may be also asked to call in person or communicate with business owners and other interested individuals via telephone or email to show your support for the Chamber of Commerce and its events. From time to time, you may be asked to assist in procuring sponsors and participating in fundraising to support the committee’s efforts.
