The Board of Directors is a volunteer group of Chamber members. They make decisions about how to best serve the membership and the community.

How big of a commitment is the role of Director? Through election to the board as a director, you assume the responsibility of the governance and fiduciary duties of the organization. You are expected to regularly attend monthly board meetings and the Annual General Meeting. The success of our Chamber lies in the vision and participation of our members and our Board of Directors to direct the course for our future, embracing opportunities and challenges. Your business voice will make a difference, and we have the capacity to build on our strengths and carry on the tradition of our founding Chamber leaders. Let’s grow and strengthen the Dryden District Chamber of Commerce together.
