Recently, the Chamber worked with a Master's student from Trine University to develop a high-quality, structured, rewarding volunteer program. Volunteers are a critical piece to our organization. With engagement from our members, we are able to be a stronger support to the business and community in DeKalb County. In philosophy and in practice, volunteers are at the core of the Chamber. They plan an integral part of a dynamic volunteer organization whose primary purpose is to make DeKalb County a great place to live, work, and play through creating a culture of business, community, and education. Working with the Chamber is a special opportunity. We hope volunteers will find their association with the Chamber a matter of both pride and satisfaction that will be mutually productive and enjoyable.
Listed below are the volunteer opportunities available with us. Ready to commit or just want to learn more? Complete the Volunteer Interest Form and submit it to Terry.
Task Force Definition: A task force is a group of committed individuals working together to achieve a specific goal or project. The task force only exists until the goal has been met or the project complete. It is up to the group whether or not a regular meeting is held as communication and progress may take place without a regular meeting.
Committee Definition: A committee is a group of committed individuals with an ongoing mission critical to the organization. The committee is responsible for setting, measuring, and ensuring progress towards goals, reporting and making recommendations to the board of directors, and creating and recruiting for task forces for a purpose or project under the committee's ongoing mission.
