It’s Time to Get Involved!
If you would like to be involved in helping to promote the growth and prosperity of the Albany area, the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce is a great place to be involved. The Chamber has various committees and task forces to represent the major areas of interest of our business community. Committee involvement creates leadership and networking opportunities.
These committees have openings throughout the year. If you have time and interest, we would like to offer you the opportunity to become involved. Please contact the Chamber office if you are interested in getting involved.
The Chamber Ambassadors are the “Goodwill” arm of the Chamber. They attend ribbon cutting ceremonies, open houses, Business After Hours and other Chamber or community events.
