Committees and Task Forces

The Burlington Chamber of Commerce’s programs, services, and offerings are powered by Chamber staff and the wonderful work of our volunteer committees. There are many benefits to becoming involved as a volunteer at the Burlington Chamber of Commerce. It is a great way to get involved with the Burlington community, meet business leaders, and hone your leadership skills. If becoming a member of the Board of Directors interests you, knowledge of chamber volunteer committee work is a great asset to have.

All committees are guided by the organization’s Strategic Plan which seeks to advocate for business, build the Chamber brand, strengthen the value of membership, and build a more effective organization.

As we move forward, we ask that you complete the below application to participate in these committees. We encourage current and past volunteers to re-apply. Please use the link below to complete your application.
