Volunteers are the key to our success.
There are many opportunities to become involved in numerous areas of the Chamber. Below are listed a few of our volunteer committees. For more information on joining one of these committees and joining a group of people who work to make a difference, please use the form.
Committees are a great way to contribute while developing relationships with those who share common interests. Even if you choose not to serve on a committee, we encourage you to become familiar with the activities of the committees and how they can benefit your business both directly and indirectly.
- Governmental Affairs – Represents and informs the business community on federal, state and local government issues. Develops and maintains relationships with elected officials.
- Leadership Midland – A program designed to give participants a glimpse into the different components of the community including non-profits, education, city government, etc. Each years class is made familiar with opportunities for leadership within the community and equipped with skills for future leadership.
- Partners in Education – Partners In Education is a joint initiative with the Midland Chamber of Commerce, the Midland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Midland Independent School District and the Midland Education Foundation. Founding organizations provide the administrative and financial support to recruit and educate new Community Partners, facilitate donations, connect Community Partners with volunteer and mentoring opportunities and assess Community Partner needs. Our valued Community Partners are the reason PIE was created and these organizations do their best to facilitate the Partner/recipient relationship. The purpose of the commity is to increase and expand communications and working relationships between businesses and educational communities through school/business partnerships. The committee conducts activities that directly benefit our teachers, students, and community.
- Ambassadors (M-Squad) – Highly visible volunteer representatives of the Chamber at public events such as ribbon cuttings and ground breakings. They are the front-line of our Chamber and community.
