2024 Presenting Sponsor

The goal of the Commodore program is to encourage meaningful  participation in the Chamber’s programs and services for all members in an effort to build member commitment and increase member retention. Commodores help make new members feel welcome and introduce them to Chamber programs. The Chamber's Commodore program is presented by Redstone Federal Credit Union. The group photos above were taken at Sonny Side Alley on the MoCo Mural Trail.

Who are the Commodores:

The duty of the Commodores is to serve as the public relations arm of the Chamber. This group of professionals is a valuable asset to the Chamber that volunteer their time and expertise to welcome and mentor new members, build membership and raise community awareness of Chamber activities and benefits. Commodores are Chamber members in good standing who are enthusiastic, professional and outgoing and possess leadership qualities and skills.

Commodores can make presentations and display business cards, promotional materials or brochures during Commodore luncheons, as approved by the Admiral. Additionally, Commodores are encouraged to build lasting business relationships with other Chamber members and prospective members. Every Commodore makes a commitment of one year of service.

What the Commodores do:

  • Support and actively participate in the goals and action plans set forth by the Board of Directors
  • Welcome and involve new members by encouraging participation in Chamber-sponsored events
  • Attend ribbon cuttings, ground breakings, relocations and grand openings with assigned Commodore Team
  • Volunteer for Chamber-sponsored events
  • Serve as mentors to new Chamber members by visiting assigned business or calling member quarterly for a 12 month period
  • Deliver packets to new members and visit existing members or prospects, inviting them to Chamber functions.
  • Meet for lunch on the second Friday of each month. During lunch, a guest speaker covers topics such as city planning, the school system, industry, tourism, higher education, leadership and recreational facilities just to name a few.
