Committees

______________________________

Committees are a fundamental component of the Swan Valley Chamber of Commerce. The committees are comprised of Chamber members and are designed to address specific areas and issues. Committees are one of the best ways for membership to become actively involved in an area which interests them. Each committee meets at their convenience at a location of choice. A bi-monthly report will be presented from each committee at the General Membership meetings.
