Board of Directors
The Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in supporting small and large businesses in the region for many years. Over the last few years, I have seen firsthand the passion and commitment to success for ALL members through the efforts of our remarkable chamber team and dedicated board members. From small and large events, to pivoting with the ever evolving business practices and retail and dining landscape, to providing educational and advocacy resources for members in every facet, you can’t help but feel inspired.
Inspired to be better community members. Inspired to be better partners with our business community and neighbors. Inspired to celebrate success wherever possible, especially during trying times. Inspired to both hear and be heard as our chamber advocates for all members and contributes to their success.
I have been inspired by the chamber and their tenacity to shift gears on a moment’s notice. Advocates for policy changes and providing resources to support small businesses help our businesses navigate muddy waters, every day. It is both an honor and a privilege to support the Chamber’s mission as they are a strategic business partner, and always in your corner.
