Charlotte Chamber Leadership

The Charlotte Chamber is governed by a chairperson and his or her executive committee, each serving a one-year term. Chairpersons are selected two years in advance by a nominating committee comprised of several past chairpersons, giving each incoming chairperson several years to become acquainted with the position and its responsibilities before taking on the role. The Chamber is staffed by a president and his team of professionals dedicated to Charlotte’s future and the success of Chamber members.

The members of the Board of Directors are the elected representatives of the chamber's general membership and have ultimate responsibility for chamber operations. In this capacity, the board reviews and evaluates approval of various policies, proposed actions, programs and projects which serve the best interest of the community and the chamber.
