The Chamber is seeking Volunteers and Committee Members

 

2015 Holly Springs Chamber Committees and Volunteer Opportunities

The Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce offers the following committees to address the needs of the Chamber and our members.  Participation on the committees is open to all members and we encourage members to be active in areas of personal and professional interest. Working on a committee is a way of learning issues that are happening in the Town and in the Chamber as well as a good way to get to know your fellow Chamber members.

Ambassador Team

Co-Chairs: Cindy Godwin and Michael Rolon

The Ambassador Team was established to serve new members and prospective members of the Chamber of Commerce.  Once a business joins the Chamber, Ambassadors assist the member in transitioning to become active and involved in Chamber functions. The final responsibility of this committee is to help educate new members and prospects about the benefits of Chamber membership, while acting as a liaison between the Chamber and the general membership.

The Ambassadors are expected to attend a large number of breakfast eye openers, business after hours and ribbon cutting events to help welcome and introduce members.    The Team meets quarterly during the lunch hour to discuss business and upcoming events.

Government Relations

Chair – Moss Withers

The Government Relations Committee was established to help assure a quality economic and business environment through government interaction. The group’s goals include keeping members informed on proposed legislation or actions that may have an economic impact (mainly at the local level) and to present policies and agendas to these governmental units. The group also identifies and establishes contact with key members of government. When appropriate, this group will cooperate with Town officials in a team approach to present information to improve understanding of a local issue, such as transportation, infrastructure, etc.    This Committee meets quarterly (morning meetings) or as needed based on local issues.
