• Chamber Committees

  • The Chamber has a number of different committees that help us advocate for our business community and provide valuable networking and leadership experiences. If you are interested in joining one of our Chamber Committees, fill out our Committee Interest Form here.

  • The Business & Government Roundtable will serve to guide the Chamber’s work in the area of political and regulatory advocacy. It will also serve as a resource to public agencies by providing a forum for issues and alternatives to be shared, discussed, and reviewed by leaders of the local business community. LEARN MORE...

Chamber Ambassadors assist at Chamber functions and help promote the Chamber to prospective members and the community as a whole.

  • Military Affairs Committee

    Santa Maria is proud of our relationship both with Vandenberg Air Force Base and with the large population of veterans who live and work in our community. We recognize the significant economic impact that they bring to our community, along with the value they provide as neighbors, friends, and colleagues.

    The Chamber, through its Military Affairs Committee, maintains an active relationship with the command structure at Vandenberg, providing sponsorship for airmen and employee recognition programs, facilitating interaction with local community and base leadership, and in general acting as a connector between the base and town. Additionally, the Chamber supports many veterans-related programs and organizations and annually hosts a program at the local Freedom Monument (originally built by the Chamber) to honor those with connections to the community who gave all in our defense.
