Promoting Business and Community
Without volunteers, the Umatilla Chamber would not exist. Our board members are all volunteers and we have several events throughout the year which need volunteer help as well. If you have some time and would like to help out, please contact the chamber office at 541-922-4825 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where do we need help? One thing you can do is volunteer at the Welcome Center. During the summer months, the center is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. In July of 2011 alone, we had over 2,440 visitors come through our doors -- that's an average of almost 79 visitors a day.
People come to the center looking for maps and information about Oregon. While we have a number of brochures centering on activities and events in Oregon, there is a lot of information that we don't have. That's where you can come into the picture. Even if you don't know much about Oregon, you can learn. We are asking people to volunteer two hours a month, either during the week or on the weekend. Weekends are our busiest days but sometimes, the weekdays are busy, too.
If you would like to volunteer at the Welcome Center, please call the office at 541-922-4825 or e-mail email@example.com.
Other Volunteer Opportunities:
