Volunteers Do Not Necessarily Have the Time, They Just Have the Heart

Iowa is the #2 state in the nation for volunteers – we’re working hard to be #1!

The Washington Chamber of Commerce offers volunteer opportunities throughout the year for those interested in giving back to the community. Whether it’s volunteering your time to register attendees at our workforce training sessions or run kid booths during the Summer Classic, the Chamber has opportunities for everyone.

One of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities is being a volunteer at our Welcome Center. We are always seeking friendly individuals who are passionate about our town. Your job is to welcome visitors to our community and let them know how happy we are to have them here. Tourism is one of Iowa’s greatest resources!

The Washington Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to volunteer with our many exciting events or to be one of our helpful smiles in Washington’s Welcome Center!

Event Committees

Volunteers are what make the community events in Washington a success. There are a number of ways you can volunteer for our local events which include planning, marketing, accounting, and participating in the event itself. Interested in being a part of a committee?
