Chamber members take a hands-on role in the formation of the Palos Area Chamber of Commerce. Through coordinating events, connecting with the leaders of tomorrow, and networking with various organizations, our members work to shape the community at large. Committees have provided vital insight and management during their work with the Board of Directors, and membership businesses.

Committee members assist in planning the annual golf outing held in the summer. The all-day events feature tournament, lunch, scholarships awarded to local high school golf students, auction, and more.
