Volunteers

The volunteer efforts of our members

The volunteer efforts of our members both past and present have made the Richardson Chamber of Commerce one of the largest and most active chambers of commerce in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.

When business professionals lend their time and expertise to lead the Chamber, it enables us to offer enhanced programs and more opportunities for you to grow professionally.

Volunteering is also an excellent way to maximize the value of your membership. Serving on a committee or volunteering at a Chamber event provides your more opportunities for networking, gives your business more exposure in the community and enables you to shape programs to meet the needs of your business and the business community.

Volunteer today!

The Chamber has at least 15 committees and hosts more than 30 events annually.

Consider your options, decide how much time you can serve and let us know how you would like to get involved. Each committee has its own contact person.

Like any great benefit, you get out of your membership what you put into it. Plan now how you can volunteer.
