Committees

Get Involved in Your Membership

One of the best ways to maximize a Chamber membership is to volunteer to serve on one of the organization’s various committees. It not only helps members stay informed on issues critical to their business – it also contributes to the success and impact of the Detroit Regional Chamber and business community at large. It can also be a great way to network.

Based on experience and expertise, Chamber members have the opportunity to join committees within the organization and share perspective and insight on key issues impacting the organization. These include the Advocacy Advisory Council, Ambassador Committee, Energy and Environment Committee, Public Relations and Marketing Committee, and the Tax Policy Committee.

Please note that some committees have specific requirements, time commitments, and size limitations.
