Want to serve on the Chamber Board?
​Every year in January your Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce replaces three of its board members. The slate of candidates is sent out to chamber members to vote on and the top 3 candidates are placed on the Chamber of Commerce Board. 
​Each term runs 3-years. The board meets monthly, usually the second Wednesday of the month at Noon at the Chamber office. ​Board members are responsible to uphold and advocate for the Chamber's mission; and provide duty of due care, loyalty & obedience*. 
If you would like to be on the Slate of Candidates for the Chamber Board click the link below to fill out the online Candidate Application and submit by November 17.

  • What skills, connections, resources, and expertise do you have to offer and are willing to use on behalf of the Chamber?
