LGRCC & CVB Standing Committees
The Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB identified three main goals for the future in its strategic plan: Increase revenue, grow the year-round economy and grow the Convention & Visitors Bureau. Each of these goals has a committee, and board members serve on at least two of these main committees. The following are meetings for subcommittees:
Events & Programs:
This group of chamber volunteers plan and host several special events throughout the year. Events range from chamber member/family outings to a major Annual Dinner in October. Events are a great place for networking with chamber members and the community. This committee also coordinates the hosting of educational, training or informational sessions. The committee also assists the board with exploration of major projects and value-added programs for our members.
