Chamber Board

Serving on the board is a rewarding experience and an opportunity for professional growth. Directors are nominated by committee, approved by the general membership, and elected by a majority vote of current board members. If you are interested in becoming an upcoming board member email Stacie.
 "I wanted to be on the board to help strengthen local businesses, deepen connections and because I am passionate about entrepreneurs and small business."
"This was my chance and opportunity to be a part of a group I knew I could contribute to and have a passion for. Being in the chamber was exciting for me, but I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of the Board!"
"To learn more about our community and to help be a part of our future growth. Also, the relationships with other business owners, whether its personal friendship growth or just business friendships."
