    Committees

    The River Region Chamber of Commerce is largely volunteer-based. Only a combination of the Chamber staff and committed membership volunteers will ensure the Chamber is successful in accomplishing its mission.

     

    If you’re serious about getting involved with an organization that will have a tremendous impact on the future of the River Region, contact a chairperson today! To attend one of the Committee meetings, please see the schedule in the Chamber Calendar.
