The dictionary defines the word “committee” in two ways: “A person or body to whom some trust or charge is committed” and “A body or person appointed to study, take or recommend action.”
The Humboldt & District Chamber of Commerce populates a number of committees that do a variety of tasks, from our Business Awards to forming the policies of the Chamber and liaising with levels of government on behalf of the Chamber’s members.
A member of the HDCC Board of Directors traditionally chairs or sits on each committee and the committee membership is made up of volunteers from member businesses. The committees of the Chamber are listed below, with a description. If you are interested in being involved with one or more of these committees or require further information on a committee, please do not hesitate to contact the Chamber office at 306-682-4990 or email Brent Fitzpatrick at firstname.lastname@example.org
