Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce Teams
The Mount Joy Chamber has many teams to divide up the work and create opportunities for members and interested individuals to come together for the common good of the community. Anyone interested in becoming a member of any of the teams should contact one of the Chamber board members or the Mount Joy Chamber office.
This committee seeks out and welcomes new members, and works to maintain existing members. They have created a membership packet that outlines in detail the benefits of a Mount Joy Chamber membership.
Chicken BBQ Team
The funds for our Mount Joy Chamber scholarships are generated in part by the proceeds from the Chicken BBQ. A lot of work goes into planning the Annual Chicken BBQ. If you would like to be on this Team, please contact the Chamber office. It is a fun event!!

The Mount Joy Chamber has a sign at the East end of town that needs updated. Some of the organizations on it no longer exist and new ones need to be added. Thank you to Eastern Mobile Wash for cleaning this sign for the Chamber. We hope to be updating this signage shortly. If you have interest in the sign below town and would like to help with the updating, please contact the Chamber office.
