    Ellsworth Area Chamber Ambassadors

    This group works the crowd at our monthly member meetings making everyone feel welcome and are also the ones who organize and host our ribbon cuttings and member events such as our monthly Kick Starters, Annual Awards Banquet, Salute to Education Luncheon and more.  It you enjoy socializing and have a knack for event planning this is the committee for you!

    Cheese Curd Festival Committee

    Held in East End Park each June, the Cheese Curd Festival is our largest fundraiser and that means this committed group has a big job.  The event is growing and is the foundation for local tourism efforts.  It’s earned national and international attention and a grant from the Dept. of Tourism!  A variety of expertise and talent is needed for an event of this magnitude.  Fun subcommittees offer opportunities for everyone.

    Workforce & Development (Formerly known as the Industrial Council)

    The Industrial Council is undergoing a transformation to better address the need of area employers.  This committee will work to support business leaders in attracting/retaining top talent, forge relationships with educational institutions to address needs, and advocate for and support a pro-growth agenda to local government and economic development organizations.  If workforce challenges impact your business, investing in this group will be worthy of your time.

    Connect Communities

    With the Chamber’s acceptance into the WEDC’s Connect Communities program, this committee has an important task.  Their focus is on the planning, development and revitalization of our downtown district.  Action Groups are working on variety of specific tasks aimed at corridor improvement, beautification, public art, placemaking, recreation and more.  If you’re looking to make a lasting impact on Ellsworth’s downtown and community, look no further!  For more information contact Kim Beebe here.
