Chamber Board of Directors

The Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer driven organization and relies on its Board of Directors as the decision-making body. The functions of the Board of Directors are legislative in nature. The Board is the policy-forming branch of the organization. They approve the program of work and the budget; receive and relay committee reports; and direct general activities of the organization. While the Board of Directors does not want to do all the thinking for the organization, they must assume responsibility for final decisions.
