West Side Board & Staff

Meet our leadership Team for 2021! Every Chamber of Commerce is an independent non-profit organization governed by a local team of volunteers.  The Board of Directors sets the vision and agenda for the organization, makes sure that everything is managed well, and hires any needed staff.  We work hard to make sure various business districts and business types on the Des Moines West Side are represented well.
