  • Our Committees

  • Committees allow members to get more involved with the Chamber with the topics that matter to them. By lending their expertise and time, members help uplift their community. They also network with fellow Members and help represent their company.

    Who Are the Chamber Committee Members?
    The Committees Program consists of volunteers from the Chamber membership who donate their time to assist the Chamber in various activities. It also includes Chamber staff members.

    Rewards of serving in a Committee:

    • Networking opportunities to establish and maintain valuable business contacts
    • Recognition as an engaged community leader, individually and for the business/organization you represent 
    • Recognition at events and Chamber publications
    • Opportunity to make a contribution to the Portsmouth area and to your chamber 
    • Opportunity to work “behind the scenes” on behalf of the Chamber at events and activities that define and set a course for the future of the Portsmouth Area
