Leadership

Leadership Is key for a growing Chamber of Commerce. It is the volunteers who provide leadership.

 

The chamber was incorporated for the purpose of promoting the civic, economic, and social welfare of the people of Bonne Terre and for the purpose of involving itself in City, County, State and National Programs in so far as they influence the growth, development, and prosperity of Bonne Terre and the territory it serves. Until 1992 the chamber did not have a permanent office. During the Presidency of Wayne Weber the chamber achieved it’s goals of hiring a secretary and opening an office in the Shepard House.  The chamber office moved to its current location at 41 Young St.,  adjacent to the license bureau.
