Committees

Volunteers are vital to the success of the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce. With over 25 events annually, standing committees, special task forces, and an active member program, the need for dedicated individuals is high.

At the Chamber, we make all attempts to match the "right person to the right job" in order to make your volunteer experience an enjoyable and interesting one. In addition, we offer a wide range of opportunities with varying time commitments to accommodate the needs of our membership and their busy schedules.

For more information on ways you can get involved, contact us at the Chamber office, by
email or telephone: 250-287-4636.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
