Where your money goes
The financial investment made by members like you, in the form of dues, sponsorships and participation in events make a significant impact on critical business and community issues. The maintenance of an adequate level of support from all business and professional interests in the community is essential to finance the programs that are vital to community growth and development. By leveraging the talents and resources of our members we can improve the economic opportunities for everyone.
Members of the Cedar Park Chamber are at the top of our organizational chart. Members are the strength of the organization, both as investors and the principal customers we serve. Our Board of Directors, committed volunteers selected from Chamber members, establishes our policies, sets the budget and implements our program of work.
The Board of Directors elects an Executive Committee of eight officers to transact business between meetings of the Board. The Board employs a President/CEO, who hires a staff of professionals to conduct daily business and operate the Chamber office, and to assist the volunteers in the accomplishment of our goals.
