Chamber Vision Statement Our members are the pillars of the business community. Together we join forces to influence business and community issues and make the Wheaton community a better place to work, live, and play.
Special Roles: A task force functions differently from a standing committee in that members are approved by the Board of Directors and tasked with objectives related to specific issues.
Economic Development Task Force members may be asked to make a commitment to attend City Council meetings and to be well versed in the Chamber's position on business issues, especially as it pertains to the recruitment, retention and development of Wheaton businesses.
