The Board of Directors of the Burleson Chamber of Commerce serves as the executive arm of our organization. Their primary focus is to define goals and objectives for the Chamber of Commerce that will best serve the interests of the true owners of the Chamber: its members.
Elected by the general membership, the Board of Directors represents a wide variety of companies, industries and organizations, and provides diverse business and community leadership experience to the Chamber.
Chamber members will elect five new Directors to replace current members who have served their duly-elected terms: Devohn Pugh, Your New Neighborhood; Jason Bagley, Truck Along Equipment Sales; Lisa Schwarz, Crazy 8 Ministries; Mary Warren, Keller Williams Realty;
Russ Richardson, Community National Bank.
Board elections will be held in mid-December by electronic vote. Directors are elected by the Chamber membership, with one vote per membership. Candidates must be Chamber members in good standing and with a history or Chamber, community and business leadership. If you are interested in serving or know of a Director candidate, contact Chamber President Andy Pickens or any of the current Board members to discuss the nomination process and the responsibilities of the Chamber Board of Directors.
