Accepting Board of Directors Applications

The Lewisville Area Chamber is governed by a board of directors made up of members elected to serve either a one-year or three-year term.
 
The Board of Directors create the policies, positions and direction for the Chamber, often with advisement of other committees and task forces.
 
Board members are encouraged to attend membership functions and further the communication of chamber issues. The time investment for Board of Directors members is usually 4 - 5 hours monthly.
