Simply stated, the Chamber of Commerce is comprised of businesses, organizations and individuals that join the Chamber. Together, we work to to improve the quality of life and to connect our businesses with our community in order to build a healthy economy. We do this through Advocacy, Promotion and Education.
As we work to accomplish these goals, the Chamber wears many hats: economic developer and planner, tourist information center, business spokesperson, economic counselor and teacher, government relations specialist, human resources advisor and public relations practitioner.
Your Chamber of Commerce is run by its members whom elect a Board of Trustees to determine policies and sets goals. The Board’s elected President presides over the monthly board meetings. Everyday operations are handled by the Executive Director, Heidi McCutcheon, who is a paid employee working jointly with the Board of Trustees and Chamber committees to implement the goals and mission.
Chamber committees are the most common method that individual members utilize to become actively involved in the Chamber. These committees focus on many subjects including economic development, education, human resources, conventions, tourism, public affairs and government relations.
