 Opportunities abound for community development. The general public as well as Mountain Community Chamber of Commerce members are invited to join in the fun on Thursday, Sept. 27 for cake and formation of community development activities. We will form working groups and establish regular committee meeting times. We’ll go over some guidelines and ideas to get everyone started.

For example, we can get the Tourism Development Committee going. David Chavez, Marketing and Promotions Associate from the Kern County Board of Trade, will be there to chat with members interested in working on Tourism Development.

Other opportunities include an Ambassador Committee. You can help organize mixers, grand openings and talk with a few members a month. That’s a great committee for anyone wanting to meet more of our members on a regular basis. We can also support an Education Committee, Nonprofit Committee, Government Affairs Committee, Finance, Business Development….the possibilities are endless.

Don’t forget the Holiday Fair Committee! They meet the first Tuesday of each month and Committee Chair Robin Willoughby will be on hand to give an update to anyone interested in our signature event. It’s happening December 1, so get involved now to make the return of the Holiday Fair the biggest and best yet!

Or, how about being on the chamber’s board of directors? Now is a good time to let us know you are interested so we can plan an information meeting to go over the duties and responsibilities. The new term starts April 2013.

Come get involved this Thursday: Antelope Valley Bank/California Bank and Trust located at 3150 San Carlos Trail in Frazier Park.

Consider bringing a dessert to share (not mandatory). We also welcome donations of children’s books for the Rotary Festival of Books this Saturday, and donations of non-perishable food items for the Family Resource Center Food Pantry. Let’s go for a goal of 30 books and 30 food items!

This is part of the September 21, 2012 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.

Have an opinion on this matter? We'd like to hear from you.
