Chamber Committee Descriptions

Chamber members are invited to get more out of their membership by participating with a Committee.  Feel free to attend one of the regularly scheduled meetings to see if it’s a good fit for you.  You are encouraged to contact the Chamber office 715.483.3580 to confirm the date / time / location of each of these meetings and to let our staff know you’re planning to attend.  We welcome your interest and participation!

Committee meetings are listed on the Chamber Calendar on the home page of this site.

The Membership / Program Committee meets every third Tuesday of the month at 1 pm at the Chamber office.  The purpose of the Committee is to promote new and ongoing membership in the Chamber. The Committee works with staff to develop strategies to increase members, promotes membership with door-to-door visits to businesses and potential members; chooses a Falls Chamber Business of the Month, checks in with members on renewals and looks for ways to increase member retention and the benefits of membership.  Additionally the Committee helps to plan and implement all programs during the year, taking a lead role in selecting topics and speakers, and recruiting individuals for presentations on appropriate and current business issues. With responsibilities ranging from development of new events to analyzing their effectiveness, the committee works with Chamber staff to design, market and implement these initiatives.

The Ambassador Committee meets every third Tuesday of the month at 11:30 am at rotating Chamber member restaurants.  It is the purpose of the Ambassadors, as representatives of the business community and on behalf of the Falls Chamber, to act as a visible arm of the Chamber by promoting and increasing communications and member feedback and hosting and participating in Chamber public relation events such as ribbon cutting ceremonies, BA5, the Annual Meeting and all fundraising activities.  The Ambassadors are a sub-committee of the Membership Committee.  Download the Ambassador Statement of Purpose and application page 1 and page 2 here.  More information at bottom of this page.
