Board of Trustees
The Chamber is governed by a board of trustees representing the diverse industries, demographics and interests of member businesses. The board, along with the Chamber’s president and CEO, sets the direction of the Chamber and meets monthly to monitor progress and ensure that the Chamber organization stays on course.
Board members serve for three years, with one-third of the trustees elected annually. The chair may appoint up to three additional trustees at large for one-year terms. Board members are introduced at the Chamber’s annual meeting each spring.
