Member Lead Teams

The Chamber has three distinct committees, and one partnership. The committee teams are Business Education & Sustainability, Commerce Advocacy, and Member Services. Our Health & Wellness Committee integrated into Winchester's Activity Coalition. We encourage every Chamber member to become a part of one of these Teams. It is our desire to help promote vision, share fresh ideas and encourage leadership in order to improve the quality of life for all our citizens.

If you are a chamber member and would like to serve on one of our committees please contact the Chamber office at (859)744-6420. We are glad to help you get involved!

What We Do

Our team has the privilege of planning three Chamber events annually: The Annual Beer Cheese Food Week, Chamber Banquet and the Annual Golf Scramble.

Annual Chamber Golf Scramble

In September, we run the only fundraiser of the year: the Chamber Golf Scramble at the Winchester Country Club.  The number of teams increased within the last few years so much that we now have an AM and a PM tee time.  You can start your game with a Bloody Mary, lunch is provided at no charge and the Beer Cart travels around during play.  (The Beer Cart also has Water and Ale8)  Hole Sponsors provide freebies, and games.  Two coveted trophies are presented to the winner in Business Class and another in Industrial Development.

Annual Chamber Banquet

We provide a celebration of the past year’s accomplishments at the Chamber Banquet. It is a time to acknowledge the Leadership Winchester graduates and Winchester Businesses and Individuals who have made a positive difference in our community. The attendance is typically between 300 and 350 leaders in our community.

Commerce Advocacy Team

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Chamber Community Advocacy Team (CAT) is to carry out an advocacy program on behalf of the Chamber membership and business community within the governmental and political arenas by fostering effective working relationships. We are dedicated to identifying critical issues and providing a voice for members at the local, state and federal levels. Our group of volunteers meet monthly and monitor relative legislative, regulatory and municipal issues regarding public policy and community issues impacting Winchester and Clark County.

Advocacy is top priority and through our strong relationships with elected officials, we advocate for the right of local businesses and take positions on proposed ordinances, rulings and legislation. We work in close collaboration with members to ensure their needs are heard and generate meaningful support on their behalf. We may also propose a more acute response by advancing recommendations to the Chamber's Board of Directors for further action.
