Committees and Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to help promote a thriving business climate? Help increase the community livability? Make the community that you love a thriving place to live and do business in?

The Chamber seeks volunteers for many projects including: event planning and set-up, business retention and expansion, awards nominations and selection, finance and budget, and furthering the membership experience and offerings.

Opportunities can be as short as an hour or two to as long as several weeks. You choose the place that fits best with your schedule, your skills and your interests. Volunteers are needed for small jobs like event set-up and clean-up, and for larger jobs like once a week receptionist in the Visitor Center. Give us a call to see where your talents and skills are best utilized.

Chamber members, and employees of member businesses, can volunteer to serve on any one of our Chamber committees. The committees oversee a variety of tasks and issues that steer the direction of the Chamber. Any community member may volunteer but only Chamber members have voting privileges.

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee meets as needed. The committee will explore the needs of the business community. The committee should determine whether and how the Chamber is meeting the needs of the membership, and what changes in membership policies and procedures will better serve the membership.

Business Retention and Expansion

The Stayton/Sublimity Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the cities of Stayton, Sublimity, GROW EDC and SEDCOR (Strategic Economic Development Corporation), are conducting a Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) Program. Keeping an existing business in the community is usually easier than recruiting a new business. The BR&E Program helps communities understand local business needs and respond so that businesses stay, thrive, and become more committed to the community. Volunteers will be needed to interview area businesses.

Events and Promotions

Volunteer to help with the planning and execution of any of the Chamber events including: Awards Celebration and Santiam SummerFest. You can work on the overarching planning or something simple like distributing posters. You pick a tasks that best utilizes your skills and that you will enjoy. We want you to have fun!
