Executive Officers and Board of Directors

The Greater Greenwood Chamber of Commerce is led by a volunteer board of directors that:

  • determines future vision
  • establishes governing policies
  • sets public policy positions
  • monitors organizational performance, including continuous improvement, member engagement, and business community leadership.

The board employs a president and CEO to manage the Chamber’s administration, professional staff, programs and resources.

Chamber board directors engage with the Chamber on a deeper level, offering their time, talent and energy on a regular basis for an extended period of time (three-year terms). Directors are Chamber advocates who understand their board work is for the good of the organization and have the Chamber’s best interests at heart.

Interested in serving?

A board director successfully demonstrates:

  • professional conduct
  • strong communication skills
  • a collaborative spirit
  • patience
  • dependability
  • rapport-building skills
  • networking ability.

Attractive candidates will have a good reputation, respect for confidentiality, leadership skills (in the community and workplace) and financial competence.

If you are interested in applying for a seat on the board of directors, contact the President & CEO.
