Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways for a Chamber member to get involved and to expand their network of contacts. One way is to volunteer … and, there are dozens of ways you can volunteer.

Events: Every year, the Chamber hosts community events, business expos, breakfast get-togethers, after hours events, workshop & speaker series, plus a variety of other programs. These events can be fundraisers or events to help members meet other members or promote themselves. Every event takes extensive, and behind-the-scene planning, to ensure that logistics are detailed so everything is seamless and goes smoothly … and attendees enjoy the full experience of the event!

Committees: We also have committees that meet monthly. These committees act as a body of leadership, providing direction, implementation and planning … critical to the success of any event or program. Participation on Chamber committees is a membership privilege and should be regarded as an important responsibility to help the Chamber be successful.

The Chamber always needs help … and volunteering for Chamber activities is fun and rewarding, and a great way to give back to your community and meet new people.

If you are interested in volunteering for a Chamber event, or joining a committee, please contact Krista McCormack at 203-255-1011 for information on upcoming events & committee updates.

Available Committees:

  • Ambassador
    • A meet and greet program, Chamber Ambassadors provide hands-on assistance by delivering welcome packets to new members each month. This team helps new members get involved, and make sure they are aware of their membership benefits. The committee chair assigns an Ambassador to each BAH to ensure new and potential members feel welcomed and provide introductions.
  • Event Planning
    • This group is primarily responsible for our big annual fundraiser: planning the event, soliciting auction items, decorating, sponsorship outreach and providing ideas to make the event better each year. In addition, review the year-round calendar of events for optimizing outcomes. Annual events include: Beach Bash; University Freshman Orientation; Santa’s Arrival; Annual Fundraiser; Arts & Crafts, plus Health & Wellness Expo.
  • Marketing
    • Do you have a creative side? Then join us on the Marketing Committee! Whether social media, e-blasts, graphic design, website or copywriter, it’s all about brand-awareness!
  • Membership
    • Are you passionate about the Chamber?   This group works hand-in-hand with Marketing to come up with useful ideas for recruiting new members and retaining existing members … and also developing an annual membership drive campaign.
