The Chamber of Commerce needs YOU! 

Are you looking for ways to expand your professional network and contribute to your local community? Committee volunteers help shape the Chamber by advancing its strategic plan and influencing the direction of growth and expansion. Serving on a committee is one of the best ways to become involved and make an impact on the community. If you'd like to become more engaged, the Ocean Reef Chamber of Commerce
 invites you to volunteer to serve on one of our committees.

Rewards of volunteering

Volunteers benefit by:

  • Building ties and relationships with others at the Ocean Reef Club
  • enhancing their leadership abilities through consensus building and project management,
  • sharing their experience with colleagues,
  • developing or building on skills, and

Volunteer requirements

Certain criteria must be met in order to serve on a Chamber committee. Volunteers must:

  • be a member of the Ocean Reef Chamber for the duration of the appointment,
  • be willing and able to participate in the activities of the committee, support its mission or concern, and carry out assignments in a timely manner
