Chamber Committees

The Gates County Chamber of Commerce relies on its committees, task forces and councils to drive the programs that promote business within Gates County. We can't do it without our committee's, get involved today!

We need individuals with diverse skills and ideas to help lead & develop the Gates County Chamber of Commerce.  These committees meet each month to create programs that help guide the work of the Chamber. We urge you to add your voice to our work as we build a dynamic new slate of Chamber events, activities and programs to help us face the challenges and seize the opportunities that will strengthen your business.

For more information, contact the Chair of each committee you are interested in by email or by submitting the request form below.   

All meetings are held at the Gates County Administration Building, except occasional offsite meetings as announced.
