Above all, the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce is people -- people who understand that through
the Chamber they can accomplish collectively what none of them can do individually. The strength
of the Chamber lies in attracting the greatest possible number of members from the community,
creating a pool of resources from which ideas, energy and finances can be drawn.
The Chamber's members elect a Board of Directors, which in turn develops a business plan
for each year -- a list of goals and objectives for the betterment of the community.
The business plan is accomplished through a strong committee system, the committees and
task forces made up of Chamber members. In the Washington Chamber, except for two professional
staff, all positions are volunteer.
