Meet the New Members of Our 2023 Board of Directors!


The Brainerd Lakes Chamber is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who serve three-year terms and represent a wide array of business sectors, sizes and locations. Chamber members are welcome to attend board meetings, which are usually scheduled on the third Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 AM at our administrative office. This year we welcome a new Board Chair and five new Board Members!
