Business volunteers needed for special morning

#WhatWouldYouDo?  The Chamber’s Education Committee will pose this question to a group of middle school students on Wednesday, December 9 from 9:00am to noon. The program, formally known as Ethics Day, is an extremely popular and rewarding experience for participating students and volunteers.
This unique experience offers direct interaction between students, business leaders, educators, and government officials as they ask each other “What Would You Do?” to a series of timely ethical scenarios.  Participants will discuss current issues to consider how to form ethical values, resolve ethical conflicts, and to identify potential long-term effects of various decisions.  It also promotes actively listening to the perspectives of others.

#What Would You Do? is a great volunteer opportunity. To learn more about the program and how you can participate, please contact Chamber Senior Vice President, Marcie Hochhauser at or (925) 934-2007.
