Elected as officers were Jim Kacena (Law Office of James L. Kacena) to president, Cheryl Park (Soluna Vineyards) to vice president, Craig Ferguson (SDS) to treasurer, and Scott See (J. Hammock & Associates) to secretary.
At-large board members include Brad Roberts (Brad H Roberts Construction), Sandy Dean (John L.

"As the Chamber increases its scope and ramps up economic development efforts, we'll benefit from the varied insights and expertise of the board. The chamber is a member-driven organization and we look forward to continuing to engage members and support the growth and success of our business community and local economy," said President Jim Kacena.
