Other Volunteer Opportunities
The Chamber has some programs that allows members to assist the staff in delivery of services. Volunteers are required to make the program successful.
Business Retention and Expansion Process team: Connect with existing industry to identify issues that can be addressed so that jobs and investment remain in Fayette County. Depending on the number of volunteers, team members can expect about three to four industry visits a year and may be asked in assisting setting up appointments. Visits, on average, are for about an hour.
Consultants on Demand: Provide members with expertise to help their businesses grow. Consultants are on call to assist members with up to three hours of free consulting. Anticipate one to two requests a year.
