Business Description: Organized in 1945, the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce is the oldest and largest representation of business in Douglas County.  It is a non-profit organization funded by membership dues, sponsorships and donations.  The Chamber currently serves approximately 750 members.  The Chamber operates under the direction of a twenty-member board of directors.

Operations of the Chamber: The Chamber’s Program of Work is carried out through the efforts of member volunteers serving on committees that are chaired by board members.  Each staff member is responsible for one or more committees and any duties relating to their program area.  The staff works together to maintain the day-to-day operation of the Chamber office, including answering the telephone and greeting visitors.  Staff members attend all membership events, and provide assistance as needed.  The staff works as a team, providing support and assistance to one another whenever needed.

Intern Responsibilities to include: The responsibilities and duties of the intern are to assist in all program areas, as needed.  This would include but would not be limited to, helping to promote, market, prepare for, and carry to fruition all Chamber events, functions, programs, and other actions relating to member services.  Interns would assist staff members with the execution of program of work items.  This would include attending meetings (as schedules permit), working with volunteers and staff to plan and organize various events, promote events to Chamber members, and provide clerical support and labor as necessary to prepare for and carry the event to completion.

Other duties may include updating materials, preparing mailings, creating brochures / guides / event programs / flyers, etc., making phone calls, assisting visitors, setting up for meetings, research for information, data compilation, typing, filing, organizing and maintaining welcome center materials, etc. and various other office/clerical related duties.

We are confident that participation in the Internship Program will provide an opportunity that will be beneficial to all involved.  The scope of work of a Chamber of Commerce is very broad and requires involvement from nearly every segment of a community; this provides an opportunity to learn from a very diverse group of people, representing businesses and organizations on every level.  It also presents the intern with exposure to some of the top business executives in the area.

    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
