The Los Banos Chamber of commerce offers a variety of ways to become involved with the Chamber of Commerce.
Special Events Committee
Purpose is to serve as the official greeters and representatives of the chamber and their mission and to enhance and promote the image of the Chamber and the City of Los Banos. The Committee’s goal is to foster goodwill and cooperation amongst the membership and assist other chamber committees during events. The committee attends all ribbon cuttings and groundbreaking ceremonies and are the lead committee for chamber fundraising activities.
4th of July Fireworks Committee
A sub-committee of the Special Events Committee was formed in 1996 to bring back a fireworks show to the community beginning in 1997. The committee has now promoted eleven highly successful celebrations and is intent on seeing the event grow in the years to come. With the advent of legalized fireworks sales in the City, the funding for the show has increased and our fireworks show will grow larger and more spectacular. The event is held at the fairgrounds and features booths and games set-up by community groups, businesses and non-profit organizations.
Business & Economic Development Committee
This work of this committee is considered by many to be the most important role the Chamber undertakes. The committee’s job is to seek out potential new businesses to our area. Several of the committee members also serve on the City’s Economic Development Advisory Committee and this helps ensure that the group’s efforts are coordinated with efforts by that committee. While the main goal is to attract new business and the resulting jobs, retaining existing business is also an important aspect of their endeavors.
