Public Relations and Marketing: If Marketing is your forte, we need your help! This committee is essential in helping us direct our grant funds to best use on all new PR initiatives and advertising in relation to the Chamber's public image and promoting the island as a vacation destination. Work with our Marketing Specialist and PR Agency, help with the production and design of the Official Guide to Nantucket, and continue to improve our digital presence and website development/enhancements. This committee meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 12 -1 PM.
Community Initiatives: This committee works within the community and in conjunction with other local organizations to determine community wide initiatives that the Chamber can participate in and make a difference for our community. As part of its focus, this group awards annual scholarships and initiates other programs to help Nantucket students entering the business world (mentoring programs, summer internships, career day etc.). Representatives have also been involved in the Maritime Festival, downtown parking workshops and focus groups on downtown revitalization. Help us make a difference in our community! This committee meets the 3rd Thursday of each month from 9:30 – 10:30 AM.
Events: Do you love our island at the holidays, all decorated with trees and lights? Do you enjoy the Daffodil Festival as a time to get out and see your island all decked out for spring? Are you someone who loves to come downtown on Halloween and watch the children all dressed in costume? This is the committee for you! Assist in organizing and executing Chamber events including - but not limited to - Daffodil Festival, Christmas Stroll, Fall on Nantucket and Nantucket Noel. We only make these events happen because of the dedication of our Chamber members who volunteer! This committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 9 – 10 AM.
Chamber Ambassadors: This newly formed committee of highly visible and prestigious volunteers serves as the Chamber's primary liaison to current and prospective members. Considered a good will arm of the Chamber, this committee is designed to ensure our new members are welcomed...and our current members have a voice in new initiatives. If you are outgoing, and enjoy networking and building lasting relationships, this committee will help to get you out into the community! This group meets the third Friday of every month from 4-5 p.m. but requires special application. E-mail Karl Smith at email@example.com for more details.
We also need help periodically on specific sub-committees! These groups come together for a short, defined span of time to work on projects that come our way. From business incubator projects, to sponsorships and beyond, your help is vital to our continued growth and vitality. It is also the perfect way to get your name and business out in front of the community! Call us today to learn more: 508-228-3643
