The governing and policy-making body for the Moore Chamber of Commerce is the board of directors (BOD). The BOD is responsible for ensuring the chamber is accomplishing its mission and implementing the organization’s strategic plan. The BOD is representative of the Chamber’s diverse membership, and nominations to the BOD are considered annually.
I was raised in a rural, agricultural town. Today, the economy of that town struggles and most of the businesses that I grew up knowing either no longer exist or have moved down the road to other thriving towns. I wish that my hometown could experience the enthusiasm and optimism that is present in Moore.
I had no appreciation the role a chamber of commerce served until I became a part of Moore’s Chamber. Many do not know that the organization operates exclusively though the countless hours that are volunteered, financial contributions, and through membership fees. The Chamber strives to create a venue in which local commerce prospers and where people want to visit, shop, live, and raise their family.
Our community continues to expand upward and onward because of the great foundation upon which it is built. We understand that the relationships with our supporting businesses are invaluable, for without this support, there would be no Moore Chamber of Commerce. This organization and the surrounding community thrive because of the harmonious relationships between the dedicated staff, governing board, and members.
Many of you have a long standing relationship with the Moore Chamber of Commerce. You have watched it expand to over 730 members in 2019. Prior Chairman, Brent Wheelbarger, stated that “we owe a debt of gratitude to the forward thinking leaders of our past who made our present possible.”
Whether you are a loyal member or new to our community, I hope you experience genuine warmth, enthusiasm, and energy from your connection with the Moore Chamber of Commerce. For these are truly our unique and distinguishing characteristics.
I will always be grateful that I was welcomed into this family.
