Good leadership is the driving force of any organization, and the Chamber is no different. We depend on the leadership of a talented staff and a dedicated Board of Trustees to ensure your investment in the Chamber continues to be a valuable one.
The board is made up of members who are actively involved in the Upper Arlington business community and wish to assist the Chamber staff in fulfilling the organization's mission. They are elected to three-year terms by the membership. Officers serve single-year terms and are elected by the board.

Divisions and Committees
Members can choose to volunteer for one or more committees, which are an ideal way for members to network, build professional relationships and develop leadership skills. Chamber committees also develop programs to increase member benefits, provide education, attract new members, enhance the local business climate and improve the organization's financial strength.
