Board of Directors – Nomination/Application


Each year, the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce invites interested members to nominate a fellow Chamber member (or themselves) to serve on the organization’s volunteer 25-person Board of Directors team.

At the Salem Chamber, we believe in helping Salem area businesses prosper so our entire community may thrive. The application process is simple: submit the nomination form below and attach a resume or short biography. We advocate for any member interested in serving to take this opportunity to submit a nomination.

Members eligible for the nomination process must be a member in good standing, with no outstanding membership dues owed to the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. Selected individuals will serve a three-year term, beginning on July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2027. The nomination window will remain open from January 29, 2024 to February 29, 2024.

Many of Salem’s most successful leaders have served on the Salem Chamber Board of Directors. Past board members have shared that their Salem Chamber Board experience resulted in positive impacts on their professional and personal lives, improved business acumen, and expanded opportunities for enduring relationships with fellow community advocates. The Salem Chamber Board serves as a catalyst and architect for extraordinary results seen community-wide in the greater Salem area. Board members are tasked with providing guidance to the Chamber CEO regarding organizational priorities, programming, events, advocacy, and workforce development.
