What is a Chamber of Commerce?

How does the Chamber work?
The policies and programs of the Chamber are determined by its volunteer Board of Directors, elected by the membership. They, in turn, employ an Executive Director or CEO whose basic responsibility is to organize and execute the Chamber's programs and policies. The Executive Director/CEO also tries to keep in touch with our members, keeping you informed on topical business issues of the day through our local media avenues,as well as through our emails, sent directly to our members.
