Committees and Task Forces
To meet the wide range of our members’ needs, the SCBP has many Committees, Task Forces and Special Interest Groups (see below), designed to provide venues for businesspeople to come together from companies of like sizes, industries and professions to network, exchange ideas, gain new business strategies and to influence the SCBP’s agenda. To get involved, contact the SCBP staff member responsible for the one(s) in which you are interested. Members are encouraged to initiate any committee, task force or special interest group as long as it falls within the mission of the SCBP.
AWARDS COMMITTEE seeks nominations and selects individuals and organizations for the Citizen of the Year Award (presented at the May dinner) and the Economic Vitality Awards (presented at the Annual Meeting Awards Luncheon in early December).
