Why Get Involved on a Chamber Committee?
Coming Together is a beginning…..
Becoming actively involved in a chamber committee you will be able to increase the visibility of your unique business. Committee volunteers build friendships and relationships which can translate into opportunities for personal and financial growth.
Keeping Together is Progress….
A chamber of commerce is only as strong as its membership. The collective voice of entire LGRCC membership can be more effective than a lone voice, especially with regional and statewide economic and planning issues that effect business and commerce. As a chamber of commerce we are always concerned with the economic health and welfare of our community. Building a strong and diverse membership demonstrates a strength and commitment to community.
Working Together is Success...
by its nature our chamber of commerce is its own unique supportive community. Our membership communicates, celebrates and learns together for the benefit of all. But more than that, the LGRCC supports our greater Lake George community by hosting special events, providing excellent visitor services and serves as a resource for residents. Each activity we do supports our members and the community in some way. We look forward to having you get directly involved on one of our LGRCC committees and helping you to maximize your chamber membership.
