Who We Are

Meet the Chamber Staff

Board of Directors

Elected by our members, the Board of Directors serves as the Chamber’s governing body. Each year’s Board assumes office at the Annual Meeting in January and meets monthly thereafter from February through the following January. Questions, concerns, ideas and suggestions are always welcome.

Please help us improve the organization and meet our goals by communicating regularly with your representatives and staff.
