Volunteer Opportunities at the Chamber
The lifeblood of any non-profit association such as the Delta Chamber of Commerce is its volunteers. Volunteers are members and they also come from our community. Helping the Chamber is an excellent way to support the community as well as local businesses because economic development builds the foundation of strength and prosperity that allows us to live, work and play here in Delta.
A menu of ways you can volunteer:
• Delta Chamber committee member
• Event volunteer
• Hats Off to Excellence Gala committee member
• Golf Tournament committee member
• Visitor Centre Tourism Counselor
• Chamber office volunteer helping businesses
Delta Chamber member committee
As a member of the Delta Chamber, one of the best ways to get involved is by volunteering on our member committees. Through these groups, volunteers help the Chamber shape issues and accomplish goals important for the economic vitality of the entire community. Volunteers benefit by expanding their business contacts and forming long-term client relationships. The committees are:
• Economic Development
Monthly luncheons sometimes breakfasts and other special events need people who might wish to help promote the events, help set up venues, register guests and attend the events on a wide range of business and development topics.
Hats Off to Excellence Gala Committee member
The annual Hats Off to Excellence gala usually held in November is an opportunity to network, recognize leaders in business and the community and enjoy a fun evening towards the end of the year. It is also an important opportunity to recognize our sponsors and raise funds for our member services. Committee members are needed early in the year to interview and select finalists and winners nominated every year, find auction items from our many contributors, plan and produce the event, promote it, decorate and stage the event and register guests. >>more on the event click here>>

Delta Chamber and Visitor Centre Tourism Counselors
Catch the enthusiasm of living in “the best place on earth”! At the Visitor’s Centre, we happily share our enthusiasm about Delta and British Columbia. Our training program for volunteers includes certification through Tourism BC. Through the Tourism Challenge ramp up, there are forty attractions for our volunteers to tour personally, so that they speak from experience. It’s a wonderful way to participate in the vibrancy of life and keep yourself in shape physically, mentally and emotionally! Enjoy your summers by joining us at the peak of tourism activity and through the rest of the year.
Chamber office volunteer helping businesses
Throughout the year people starting their businesses need help doing a name search for their new company. Companies shipping goods overseas need Certificates of Origin. Phones need answering, mailings need to be prepared and computer entries need to be made. These are ways office volunteers help businesses do business. At the same time the volunteers may be advising and assisting tourists from other parts of the province, the rest of Canada, the United States, Europe and other. Please join us for half a day a week.
