The committee of volunteers assists with numerous membership activities and events throughout the year including ribbon cuttings and ground breakings conducted by the EMBDC. They work to secure new members and increase membership retention by building relationships and maintaining communication with existing and prospective members.
"This is group consists of a limited group of people," an EMBDC press release states. "The EMBDC would be unable to do all that it does without these dedicated volunteers."
