One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time.
Volunteering is an incredibly positive way to give back to the community and develop a new skill. Giving back to the community is something the Chamber is incredibly passionate about. We have a number of volunteer committees, as well as a volunteer board.
Many of the Chamber's current and past successes have resulted from the work of its committees, tapping into the influence and expertise within the local business community to get things done and to generate new ideas.

This Committee provides leadership in identifying and acting on local, provincial and federal issues of specific interest to members and the business community. The group oversees the strategic priorities as assigned to it by the Board (Annual goals) and in so doing engages with members to identify and prioritize issues. The group reviews requests from members for support on advocacy issues and undertakes action as appropriate to assist. That action may include developing policies that seek legislative or regulatory changes that are hindering growth and prosperity.
This group serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors to bridge past and present Chamber leadership and provides input on issues that impact the long-term health and vitality of the Chamber and the Kelowna economy.
