Board of Directors & Chamber Staff

The Chamber’s activities are overseen by our executive committee, board of directors and board of advisors, which are made up of Claremore’s top business leaders. With a staff of three employees, we support our members and the business community through community development, advocacy, education and workforce development initiatives, and with our community partnerships we promote tourism growth and economic development.
