Committees


Looking for a Great Way to
Get Involved in the Community?

 

Each year, the Elk Grove Chamber establishes a variety of committees to help advance its mission. Chamber members have the opportunity to become more involved. Serving on a committee allows you to connect with fellow business leaders at a deeper level while at the same time influencing Chamber programs and services. Welcome or recruit new members, develop business programs, share expertise, plan a banquet, even help develop Chamber policy… the opportunities are endless as you help bring people and businesses together. This type of interaction strengthens the fabric of the community’s commerce and helps businesses grow and prosper. The committees of the Chamber are listed below, along with a description of the work each does. If you are interested in being involved with one or more of these committees or require further information on a committee, please do not hesitate to contact the Chamber office at 916-691-3760.
