Board of Directors

Member-Driven Leadership

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce is committed to strengthening the business environment to improve the lives of all Minnesotans by advancing public policy and job growth strategies that create an environment for businesses statewide to prosper. The Minnesota Chamber can achieve this objective only with the ongoing leadership, talent and financial support of its Board of Directors.

As representatives of our membership, board members are chosen because of their active participation in the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, their business experience, involvement in civic affairs, and/or their commitment to helping shape public policy to ensure Minnesota’s economic competitiveness.

The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the program and policy direction, supporting business friendly candidates through PAC donations and ensuring the financial growth of the Minnesota Chamber by recruiting new members and sponsoring events. Each board member is expected to make a meaningful contribution toward these responsibilities.
