As a policy board, board members guide the chamber into the future, set long-term strategic goals and help identify issues the chamber membership should support or oppose. The Edmonds Chamber is a non-political organization, meaning it does not endorse specific political candidates. The chamber does, however, use its collective voice to speak for or against issues that will adversely affect the community and a favorable business climate.
Board members serve three-year terms, with a maximum service of three terms. Chamber bylaws allow as many as 30 board members to serve.
