CHAMBER COMMITTEES
 
The mission of the Benicia Chamber of Commerce, "Promoting Business for a Better Benicia", is carried out by Chamber members who volunteer their time in areas that are of importance to them and to the success of their business.  Chamber’s committees serve to expand the vision of the Chamber as a whole, as well as to reach out to the Chamber membership and the entire community. 

You can impact your business by building relationships within the Chamber.  Committee's welcome new, energetic volunteers to participate.  Choose an area of interest and contact Chamber staff TODAY at (707) 745-2120 or info@beniciachamber.com.



Note:  Service on Chamber committees is open-ended.  We realize business obligations or personal situations may change.  Should circumstances prevent your continued participation, members are always welcome to rejoin a committee at a later date.




Your input and participation contributes significantly to the success of your business, Benicia's business community and to our City.  Listed below are active Benicia Chamber of Commerce committees and/or partnerships that encourage participation from our members and their employees. Please call Chamber staff (707) 745-2120 to signup or request more information.
