How is the Chamber Organized?
The Choctaw Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to preserving and expanding the private enterprise system and the personal freedoms and responsibilities that accompany it. Members are at the top of the organization. They are the strength of our organization – both as stockholders and the principal customers of the Chamber of Commerce.
General direction and policies are set by a Board of Directors elected by and answerable to the investors. The Board is composed of business and professional people from various sectors of the community who are members of the Chamber.
An Executive Committee is composed of the officers – Chairman, Chairman Elect, Vice Chairman, Treasurer, and immediate past chair and President/CEO. The committee acts for and on behalf of the Board when not in session and is answerable to the Board for its actions. The President/CEO is a full – time staff of professional and carries out day-to-day operations.
Utilizing sound business practices, they coordinate the efforts of the many volunteers who make the Chamber work, and these professionals are available to you daily for assistance. Investors in the Chamber work through various committees and task forces. You are encouraged to be part of the action by voicing your opinion and ideas, and to participate in the work of these committees.
