I’m always being ask the question “How Does the Chamber of Commerce Function?” This month I would like to give you some insight about your Chamber.
The Corona Chamber of Commerce is governed by a Board of Directors, which collects suggestions and information from Chamber members for consideration or action.
The Board sets general policy which is implemented by the executive staff. The Board is normally charged with selecting the President or leader. The Chamber staff consists of director(s), officers, or volunteer workers who may serve with or without pay. Full time Chamber executives and full-time staff are normally the only employees who are paid.
Here are some of the functions of your Chamber of Commerce:
Your Chamber provides members with significant promotional services and tools, which are valuable for local businesses and extremely valuable for home-based businesses. Virtual business members are a growing segment of Chamber membership.
If you have not joined the Corona Chamber of Commerce yet, it’s time to get started. If you need more reasons to join, give our office a call at (951) 737-3350.
In an effort to strengthen the local economy, the Corona Chamber is working closely with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Corona Division. Captain VerHage and his team invited a select group of business leaders to travel to Crane, Indiana to see another NAVSEA operation, focused in technology development. The goal is to capture ideas and operations being done there, and brainstorm to bring back these ideas to the Corona Division.
