Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
Our local chamber of commerce needs multilingual volunteers to assist with police informational checkpoints. Jobs range from handing out pamphlets at the checkpoints to serving as translator for our local law enforcement. Also needed are motor pool volunteers with four-wheel-drive vehicles to help out the National Emergency Commission (CNE) during emergencies.
The chamber is looking for members, prospective members and nonmembers to volunteer within its various committees, including National and International Development, Environmental, Education and Cultural, Tourism, Security, and Membership and Finance.
Volunteer opportunities are also available in the chamber of commerce office. If you are interested, contact the chamber at 2777-0749 or info@camaracomercio aguirre.com for more information.
