Volunteers are at the heart of the work we do at the Chamber. Without the countless members who donate their time to serve on committees, at events, on focus groups and on the Board of Directors, we could not have a Chamber of Commerce as we know it today.
The LCRCC Board of Directors is a volunteer board of Chamber members that manage the organization as a whole.
