Board of Directors

The volunteer leadership of the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce encourages enthusiastic participation and provides direction for the programs and services provided for the Chamber’s investors. The Chamber’s 41-member Board of Directors serves a vital role in establishing policy and shaping the direction of the Chamber and are reflective of the diversity that defines our region’s business community.

The Board meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month (excluding summer months) in order to review and approve internal documents and procedures, establish policies and protocol, and perform any other duties deemed to be in the best interest of the Chamber and its investors.
