Chamber Board of Directors

The Knoxville Chamber’s overall direction and policy stances are dictated by our Board of Directors. This key group of community leaders represent a diverse cross-section of our membership base. Each of our committees is chaired by a board member who is responsible for bringing committee-level recommendations to the larger group for action and approval. Each board member serves a three-year term.
