We are currently seeking board seat nominations for three-year terms covering 2021 – 2023, and we invite members to run for a seat on our board of directors. Serving on the Chamber’s board of directors is a great way to become more engaged with the organization, connect with the regional business community and stand out as a leader among your peers.
