Councils and Committees

Want to get involved?

The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce has standing councils and committees that help address the needs of our Chamber members and the business community.  Each is chaired by a current Chamber member and has a staff member who serves as a liaison to the Board of Directors for reporting purposes. 

Chamber members in good standing are invited to find a Council that addresses a particular area of interest and dive in; our Chamber is powered by member passions!


The mission of the Agribusiness Council is to support and stimulate the growth of agribusiness and agritourism, fostering awareness and understanding of agricultural issues and their impact on the quality of life and economic vitality of the region.
