Thank You to All of Our Volunteers
Learn how you can serve as a Chamber volunteer
Posted on 4/9/2012
With nearly 300 volunteers strong, The Chamber is able to accomplish so much more than it could without active volunteers. To insure that we stay relevant to the needs and issues facing our members, we seek members’ active engagement in various member-driven advisory groups, committees and task forces. It is only through the involvement of our members that we are able to successfully build and implement programs and initiatives to meet the needs of businesses and our community overall.
“The Chamber relies on our volunteers for many reasons,” commented Cheryl Irwin-Bass, vice president of The Chamber. “Whether they are helping plan an event or providing direction and input on a strategic initiative, they are all an integral component in helping us build Lancaster County into a model of prosperity for 21st Century America.”
There are various opportunities in which our members can become involved. The Chamber’s volunteer program is broken down into three categories: committees, advisory groups and task forces.
- Committees are strategic in nature; providing strategic direction for the Board and staff, and the volunteers provide guidance, input and perspective.
- Advisory Groups are conceptual and tactical, providing support to a particular program, event, position or issue. The group is organized by issue/initiative or program/event.
- Task Forces have a defined project or scope of work that is typically exploratory in nature. The expected goal or outcome is a recommendation made on the topic being studied to the governing body that originally commissioned the Task Force.
