How big is the chamber? We currently have over 400+ members with two paid, full-time employees and two part-time employees. Our member base is growing everyday!
Who runs it? A Board of Directors represents all segments of the business community and is responsible for setting the Chamber’s overall policies. Board Officers serve one-year terms and Board Directors serve two-year terms. The staff is responsible for implementing policy and the day-to-day running of the organization.
Is the Chamber part of city government? The Chamber of Commerce is a private, membership-supported business organization. However, we work very closely with City Council and staff, as well as other regional and statewide governmental agencies.
When are meetings held? Committee meetings are held at varying times each month, and there are three general membership gatherings that occur on a regular basis.
Networking AM: Our weekly networking meetings for members only. They are held every Friday from 7:30 am to 9:00 am. Location changes weekly depending upon the host.
Please go to our calendar for weekly Business Team and Committee Meeting times.
