CHAMPS (Chamber Helping to Achieve Meaningful Partnership in Schools)
To foster a strong, supportive relationship between Chesterfield County Chamber member businesses and our Chesterfield County public education system. We will seek active engagement from Chamber businesses and promote quality opportunities that provide ongoing support to public education in Chesterfield County.
Sponsor three activities / opportunities directly supporting public education and engaging our membership in community outreach with area schools.
Improve communications with the schools / school board by having committee members play a more active role in school board meetings, other education-related boards and committees in the county. We would also look at ways to include public education representatives in existing Chamber events, etc., by offering booth space, speaking opportunities, etc. In return, we would offer a formal Speakers and Resources Bureau to the schools (helps promote Chamber businesses and the Chamber, while also providing the schools with much needed community support in light of budget cuts).
Establish one “education connection” that will have an immediate impact on the already-stressed school district budget. Will need to talk with school board representatives to get a better understanding of specific needs we could fill
Establish a Chesterfield County Chamber of Commerce scholarship fund.
