The Burlington Chamber of Commerce’s programs, services, and offerings are powered by Chamber staff and the wonderful work of our volunteer committees. There are many benefits to becoming involved as a volunteer at the Burlington Chamber of Commerce. It is a great way to get involved with the Burlington community, meet business leaders, and hone your leadership skills. If becoming a member of the Board of Directors interests you, knowledge of chamber volunteer committee work is a great asset to have.
All committees are guided by the organization’s Strategic Plan which seeks to advocate for business, build the Chamber brand, strengthen the value of membership, and build a more effective organization.
