Get Involved in our Community through Committee Volunteering

Committees are integral throughout the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber Foundation. The committees range in purpose and focus and they have the best and brightest to carry out the mission. We thank them for the time and expertise they provide – and encourage others to join them. Whether you would like to be more involved with government initiatives, nonprofit, women’s leadership, or help develop younger professionals, there is a committee for you.

Plan now for Small Business Saturday

November brings Small Business Saturday on November 26th – an opportunity to show support for local businesses. Thinking local first keeps resources within the Hudson Valley, helping small businesses thrive. Find something unique while also supporting your community, whether it is a vinyl record from Darkside Records or some wonderful holiday décor from Adams Fairacre Farms (shameless plug), now is a great time to shop and Think Local First.
