The following Standing Committees have been found to be necessary and shall be maintained by recruiting volunteers from the general membership:
The Board may, from time to time, establish ad hoc committees to help carry out its responsibilities. To preserve Board unity, these committees will be used sparingly, only when other methods have been deemed inadequate. Ad hoc committees will be used so as to minimally interfere with the wholeness of the Board’s job.

Committees and Working Groups
The purpose of committees and working groups at the Chamber varies depending on the issue(s) being addressed and the type of group formed. Each year, the Board of Directors evaluates the groups to determine their focus and structure for the upcoming year. For 2009, the Chamber has three standing committees and three working groups. The work of committees and working groups support the Chamber's vision, mission, values and goals.
