Chamber seeks Information Center Volunteers
The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce is seeking to fill a few more volunteer positions for its Rockland Information Center this summer.

The Chamber seeks friendly, professional, and reliable individuals who enjoy interacting with people from all walks of life and who are enthusiastic about promoting our region, our Chamber members, and our area’s many events and activities. Individuals who are able to commit to a regular, 3 to 4 hour weekly time slot during the summer season are preferred. Year-round volunteers and single-day event volunteers are also needed. For all positions, knowledge of the local area is essential, and we are happy to offer real-time training. Through our Information Centers and our outreach programs, the Chamber aims to be the authority on local business and tourism.

If you are interested in finding out more about volunteer positions at the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce, please contact Amy Rollins, at 207-236-4404 or via email at amy@camdenrockland.com.
