Chamber Committee Opportunities...
In order to continue the positive growth within our organization, the Chamber relies on a fantastic team of volunteers to help keep things running smoothly. Our "Task Teams" work behind the scenes to make sure our members are receiving meaningful benefits, our events are well-run, and our region is getting the attention it deserves. The Chamber holds numerous events throughout the year. Some are in the form of fundraisers that help support the mission of our organization, while others, such as our networking and "Meet the Chamber" events, are designed to benefit our members and the community in an immediate and direct way.
Our current major committees include:
Started in 2023 - This new committee is tasked with thinking outside the box when coming up with creative and exciting fundraisers for the Chamber. There are a few successful Chamber fundraisers already worked into our calendar but this group is eager to add more exciting events with our community partners to benefit the community, the Chamber and our membership.
Committee Chair: Tim Mathewson of Millennial Moving Solutions and committee members include; Tom Robb of Benjamin F. Edwards, Brett Cusick of Northcape Design Build, Doug Daniels of Mount Sunapee Resort, Brianna Critch of Claremont Savings Bank and Ty Morris of Coldwell Banker Lifestyles
Business Growth Committee
Started in 2014, the Education Committee was tasked with researching and providing relevant educational benefits to our members. Keeping on trend with our modern age - the Chamber doesn't want to add one more event to your already busy schedule so the Education Committee turned into our now Business Growth Committee and is tasked with inviting guest speakers to our already planned Business After Hours events each month. With these events already being on our calendar - the Business Growth Committee feels this is ultimately two events in one - making it easier to participate in Chamber activities.
Committee Chair: Noelle Bassi of Colby-Sawyer College and committee members include; Leigh Ann Root of Sunapee Trading Post, Amy Drummond of Northcape Design Build, Jen Tockman of Colby-Sawyer College, Christine Upton of Ledyard National Bank and Shandi Elliott of Sweet Beginnings Daycare
This committee is charged with making sure our region gets the attention it deserves, as well as covering all aspects of marketing for the Chamber and it's events. The marketing committee is responsible for putting together a yearly marketing plan and budget, and will work with each chamber event committee to assist in staying on plan and budget. The marketing committee helps to keep the Chamber up to date on new marketing opportunities and challenges so we can stay one step ahead for our membership.
Committee Chair: Julia Whitney of New London Hospital and committee members include; Lorie McClory of Eastman Community Association and Debbie Campbell of Beyond Design
This committee works on growing and expanding upon our membership benefits as well as new member outreach. From our regional guide to member e-blasts there are lots of ways for our businesses & organizations to see the return on their investment with Chamber membership but this committee is tasked with researching how we can continue to improve and expand what we offer. Reaching out to new businesses about becoming a Chamber member happens everyday but this committee is able to streamline that process and do a little more outreach to specific places of interest.
