Committees

Why should I join a Chamber Board Committee?

The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce (MRCC) exists to foster a thriving environment for business in the region.

If you are not quite ready to be a Board Member, but want to be involved, joining a committee or task force is the perfect way to become an active piece of the chamber-machine.

The strategies and direction that the MRCC uses are often decided around the various committee tables. Join the voices of other businesses, locally, regionally, provincially and federally, and be heard.

Below are brief descriptions of the various committees and task forces that are available to join.  We'd love to hear from you and have you on the team.
