The Chamber Southwest achieves its objectives through the volunteers who participate within our committees and other initiatives. It is our belief that only through active involvement will members truly receive a return on their investment.
All committees are organized into one of four councils, and are designed to support and implement our strategic plans. Committees may form coalitions and sub-committees as deemed necessary to meet their goals. Explore below to learn more about the different committees that make-up the Southwest Louisiana Chamber.
