Board Members

The Board of Directors is comprised of 13 members representing the business, organization, or individual members of the Chamber.  Each director serves a two year term, which is renewable.  In September of each year the Chamber will have an open call for interested board members.  If there are more applications than open seats, a ballot will be distributed to the membership to select the new directors.  An additional 3 seats are held by Student Representatives for the Pine City Ambassador Program, Pine City High School, and Pine Technical & Community College.
