Avon Chamber Board of Directors

The Board of Directors acts as the governing body of the Chamber and provides vision and strategic direction of the organization while ensuring implementation of approved strategic action plans. It meets approximately 12 times per year, usually on the third Thursday of every month. It is responsible for the control of Chamber property, its finances and business affairs; as well as being the final decision point for the formal adoption of governance and policy.

The Board membership consists of the following:
• Between 6 and 10 elected members, and the immediate past president.
• Secretary/ Administrator

Avon Chamber Staff

The Avon Chamber of Commerce employs a part Coordinator responsible for ensuring that the membership database is effectively maintained, that all member correspondence is completed in a timely fashion, and that appropriate welcome information is made available to new members. Staff is available to assist Board Members, Committee Chairpersons, and members. They are under the direct authority of the Board of Directors.

Avon Chamber Committees

Committees are the lifeblood of the Chamber and provide members with the most effective means of being involved in policy development. Without its vibrant committee structure and the invaluable resources provided by the committee members, the Chamber would cease to be
the effective "Voice of Business".

The Chamber's Standing Committees monitor their areas of concern, formulate policy resolutions and identify issues for action or programs for action to be addressed by the Board of Directors. They are:
• Strategy and Policy Committee
• Membership Committee
• Education Committee
• Marketing/ Socialmedia Committee
• Social/Events Committee

In addition to these Committees, the President of the Board of Directors from time to time after review of specific topics or issues, may establish other ad-hoc/ task force Committees or Subcommittees.
