The heart of the Chamber is the work of our volunteer committees. The committees are formed to meet the needs recognized by members for the benefit of business and the community. A thriving community depends on the strengths of its business community.
The mission of each committee is listed on each committee page. If you have interest in finding out more about a committee or would like to volunteer, please contact the chamber office.
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers must be chamber members and some committees have limited openings. If you are interested in joining a Chamber committee, please contact the Chamber.
The Chamber Ambassador Program is the volunteer arm of our organization. They represent the Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce in our community and at Chamber-sponsored events. The ambassadors are dedicated volunteers from diverse businesses through the Battle Creek area. Their mission is to welcome, nurture, and recruit new Chamber members; act as goodwill representatives at Chamber functions and aid in the support of Chamber members. The Chamber’s goal is to help the Ambassador develop their networking opportunities while volunteering at various Chamber and community functions. Ambassadors serve in a public relations capacity and as a liaison between the Chamber staff and member businesses as our official “hosts.”
