Without the active participation of individuals who volunteer time, energy, and talent, the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau objectives would not be accomplished. Personal commitment from our members brings the Chambers effort to life.
Please consider joining other Chamber members by volunteering your time and talent to meet the challenges ahead.
