A 12-member board of directors is elected by the membership to serve (without pay) to oversee and set Chamber policies. Board members are elected for 3 year terms with Board officers elected to one-year terms. An executive director is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Chamber.
In order to promote economic development and tourism in our area, the Chamber also serves on the boards of several other organizations including various municipal and County development associations. You will benefit from investing in the Chamber by attending networking opportunities such as Business After Hours. You will have the opportunity to maximize your presence on the web through your free listing in what is proving to be of the most popular online business directories in this region. We receive calls from out-of-county organizations seeking opportunities to network with our business community almost weekly.
