The Westmoreland County Chamber offers several committees and task forces to organize events and programs for the membership and improve our region all while promoting their business and network with other members. The Chamber invites members to join committees at any time.
Many members find committee involvement to be both professionally and personally rewarding. Most committees hold monthly meetings for approximately one hour with one to two hours of ‘outside’ work when projects dictate.
If you’re interested in serving on a committee, contact the Chamber office by calling us at 724-834-2900 or emailing us to indicate your preference.
