Dumas Moore County Chamber of Commerce Committees
Our Committees and councils help to define our policies on the issues that are critical to your business or organization. These groups are not alone in formulating policy—we'll often ask for your views on certain key issues through meetings, mailings, and surveys. These exchanges provide valuable insight to the members of our committees and to the board of directors.
