Board of Directors

2019-2021 Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the policy-making body of Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber. The Board is comprised of 21 A2Y Chamber members who are appointed to three-year terms. The A2Y Chamber President, appointed by and responsible to the Board of Directors, is the principal executive officer of the Chamber and serves an ex-officio member of the Board.

An Executive Committee, consisting of the Chair of the Board, the Vice Chair, the Immediate Past Chair, the Treasurer, and members appointed by the Board of Directors, acts to recommend action to the Board of Directors or act on the Board’s behalf on certain matters.

Other Board sub-committees, through which members assist the Chamber, include the Policy Committee and the Membership & Marketing Committee.
