Meet Our Board

The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is comprised of a group of local business leaders. Board members serve three-year terms with an optional opportunity to serve a consecutive second term. These individuals represent a varied group of professions from a wide cross-section of business sectors and industries to form a collective voice for membership.

Within the Board of Directors, an Executive Committee is appointed to act for and on behalf of the Board of Directors when the Board is not in session. This group is accountable to the Board for its actions. The Executive Committee is composed of the Chair of the Board, Past Chair, Chair-Elect, Vice Chairs and the President. The Chair of the Board will serve as Chair of the Executive Committee.

Join us in recognizing these dedicated leaders for their dedication to our Chamber, its members, and Duluth’s business community.
