OJC Committees

The chamber is launching several committees, with representatives from each region, offering individuals throughout the world's Jewish communities the opportunity to make a difference and facilitate some of the OJC's most important services.

 

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is the chamber’s most powerful and prestigious body, overseeing our broad network of member businesses and regional committees. The committee consists of a select group recognized businesses and community leaders who form the brain trust of all OJC initiatives and operations. By invitation only.
 
Regional Sub-Committee

Each Regional Sub-Committee is comprised of up to 10 Businesses from within each community. They will be involved in the planning and orchestrating networking events for their local businesses and community/region. Each Regional committee will also assist with solicitation of donations for events and drawings, as needed. Committee members will  make a real positive impact on the lives of their friends and neighbors, while significantly gaining business exposure within the business world.

Public Policy Committee

The Public Policy Committee will join members from multiple regions and will keep the chamber board and members informed on pending legislation. It serves as an opportunity for members to develop relationships with their elected officials. This committee will also play an important role in helping the Chamber develop its legislative agenda for the OJC members.

They welcome and recruit new chamber members, act as representatives at chamber functions, and offer chamber members support in our various programs.
