Chamber Board of Directors
12 Chamber members elected by the membership lead the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce. The board make decisions for the Chamber regarding policy, establishes an annual budget and program of work, elects the officers of the Chamber and hires the Executive Director.
Fellow Board members vote the 3 officer positions each April following board election. The officers of the Chamber have specific responsibilities, but are no more powerful or responsible than any other board member. The officers collectively form the Executive Committee, which coordinates the board agenda and the work of the committees and establishes interim policy for the Chamber between meetings of the board. The officers of the Chamber include the Past-Chairman, Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer.
The purpose of the Ambassador Program is to enhance the visibility of and promote general membership in the Chamber. Ambassadors serve as the public relations by developing a two-way communication between themselves and the membership. They assist in the critical role of membership retention by calling on members to update them on current activities and special events as well as asking how the Chamber can better serve them. Chamber Ambassadors are our boots to the ground!
