2017 Board of Directors

The Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce is managed by its President and an all-volunteer Board of Directors.  Our Board brings to the Chamber many years of experience from their positions within their companies and within the community.  Most Board members are elected for three year terms, and at the end of their three-year terms, many of them return to serve an additional three years. Board membership requires dedication and caring, an ability to make sound decisions, excellent stewardship of the Chamber’s finances, and many hours of hard work.  Our Board members are always willing to lend a hand at events, donate a needed piece of equipment, and to offer their support in so many other areas when they’re called upon.
