Governance

About Our Board of Directors

The Chamber of Commerce is guided by a Strategic Plan developed and managed by a volunteer Board of at least 12 Directors elected from among the Membership and supported by a structure of Committees and Task Forces.  Board Members are elected for 3-year terms and may be re-elected up to two times.  Terms are staggered so that only four Board seats turn over annually, helping us share knowledge between one generation and the next and ensuring we have a diverse and vibrant leadership group.  Elections are held annually in September.
