Committees

Pocono Chamber Committee meeting around conference table.

Volunteer leaders work together on various Chamber committees or in other ways to enhance our quality of life and promote progress. As Monroe County continues to grow each year, so does the scope of the Chamber's work. Becoming a volunteer with your Chamber is an excellent way to network, get involved, and make a difference in your Chamber and in your community.

Public Policy Council: Keep abreast of legislative issues on local, state, and national levels. Select those issues having an impact bearing on our business and membership. After appropriate committee action, present issues to board for acceptance, rejection, tabling, or no additional action. Ensure those appropriate legislators, and/or legislative bodies are made aware of Chamber action. Lobby on behalf of the actions taken. The committee advises the Chamber Board of Directors on public policy issues that impact Chamber members and our community.
