Volunteer With Us

Volunteer Opportunities

The Alliance's program of work would not be accomplished without the many resources provided by our numerous member volunteers. Giving of time, talents and sometimes even finances, men and women from throughout the region are making a positive difference in Lynchburg Region's business climate through their volunteer efforts. And there's always room for more!

Why volunteer? Well, in addition to the fact that it's good for the community, it's also good for you! Volunteers make contacts with like-minded business professionals, gain valuable leadership experiences and receive increased visibility for themselves and their organizations. Take a look at
