There are hundreds of ways to get involved with the Ralston Area Chamber. From networking events to leadership councils, there’s a place for you and your business to connect with other regional leaders.
When you work on a committee, you are working together toward a common goal aimed at achieving the same purpose – for members to network with each other. Once you develop relationships with fellow Chamber/CVB members, they will begin to feel comfortable with you and either do business with you and/or refer you to others.
Involvement in any of the following groups can make members’ investments in the Chamber much more rewarding:
The "A" Team-This committee represents the Chamber and calls on current Chamber Members, attends Open Houses and Ribbon Cuttings, etc. They also call on prospective businesses to solicit new Members. Year round contacts equal year round visibility for Ambassadors!
