You need to be at the associate level because it shows everyone else the commitment you have to the chamber and the willingness you have to support other associates. It would be difficult for you to ask another person to join at a level higher than you are. All board members have to make a financial commitment to the chamber to be part of the Board of Directors.

Consider sending other company representatives who may be available to participate in the professional development that we have to offer.
