Committees

Looking to get more involved?

We have a diverse committee structure that allows our members to network with each other while engaging in the strategic initiatives of the Chamber. For more information about any of the committees listed below, contact the staff person listed.

The Chamber Ambassadors are a standing committee of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce who volunteer their time to provide a crucial link between the Chamber and its members by ensuring they are maximizing the benefits of their investment. They assist with retention through positive and professional interaction with members. They also help recruit new members by actively promoting Chamber programs, services and initiatives to businesses that are not currently a member of the Chamber. Ambassadors also serve the Chamber through participation in events such as Ribbon Cuttings and Business After Hours.

Ambassadors must be a Chamber member or employed by a member in good standing and should be a member of the THCC at least one year before consideration. New Ambassadors must be nominated by a current Ambassador, Chamber staff member or member of the Chamber Board of Directors.

Through its Strategic Initiatives, the Chamber has committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by elevating the skills of people in the local community to enter the workforce. The Workforce Development Committee was developed to focus these strategies. The group is also actively pursuing a mentoring program in cooperation with the Vigo County School Corporation and will be evaluating its effectiveness through a pilot program.
