Committees

We encourage our members to join a committee. Most committees meet once a month for an hour. Not only will you be contributing to your community, but you'll be meeting other Chamber members who can refer your business!

Activities Include:

  • Greeting guests at events
  • Helping members connect
  • Helping members learn what the chamber can do for them

“My favorite part as Chair of the Chamber New Member Ambassador Committee, is getting to meet all the new businesses and discuss their goals for what they hope to accomplish in their business while showing them how the Chamber can help make those goals a reality right here in Washington County.”    - Kelsi Palmer, Ambassador Committee Chair

Interested in joining? Reach out to the staff liaison, Brianna Scott at brianna@hagerstown.org or 301-739-2015 ext. 104.
