Business Meetings and Committees
Business Meetings and Volunteer Committees are a great way for members to connect with other business people, find out more about local issues, and enhance the quality of life of our community. Members in good standing are encouraged to participate. These meetings are currently held online via Zoom.
The Ambassadors Committee is a working committee that aids staff in the development of effective acquisition and retention programs designed to educate local businesses about the programs and services available through the South County Chambers of Commerce. Ambassadors concentrate on the retention of existing and development of new members through an awareness program emphasizing personal contacts by Ambassadors. Ambassadors welcome new Chamber members, act as hosts at key Chamber events and facilitate interaction between members at Chamber functions.
Governmental Affairs Business Meeting
The South County Chambers of Commerce recognizes the necessity of properly balanced legislation for enhancement and encouragement of the free enterprise system. In conjunction with our stated goals, SCCC supports legislation at all levels of government which insures a sound and healthy local economy. When necessary, we will vigorously oppose legislation that threatens the viability of local business as part of the private enterprise system. SCCC encourages a proactive approach to local legislation and supports research, analysis, education, and wide dissemination of proposed legislation that affects local business and the vitality of South SLO County.
The Marketing Committee is charged with selecting the Business of the Month for the months of February through December. These businesses are then eligible for the Business of the Year award which is presented at the Annual Dinner and Recognition Awards.
Local Business Meetings
These groups meet monthly. There are Business Meetings currently for Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, and Nipomo.
Purpose: As a regional Chamber, we recognize the many benefits that are achieved through combined resources and a collective voice to advocate for business. Likewise, we also recognize the importance of each community retaining their individual identity. Because each business community has unique needs, local Steering Committees have developed to work on projects in their community.
What to Expect: Business Meetings make recommendations to the SCCC Board of Directors regarding events and goals for the businesses in their community and work together to see them achieved.
Commitment Level: Attend meetings. Participants may be asked to help with events or projects in their community.
