Chamber announces 2010 Board of Governors’ priorities

The Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce, led by Scott Keith, city president at BB&T and the Jacksonvillejacksonville chamber logo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Governors’ chair, kicked off its 2010 Board of Governors program with a recent planning session at the University of North Florida.

“There was a lot of energy and a lot of encouragement at the kickoff,” Keith said. “Those in attendance felt their value as Chamber members was elevated during the planning session. They got to work alongside other community leaders and roll up their sleeves and move things forward.”

More than 100 Chamber members began developing recommendations on five initiatives vital to the Jacksonville business community. The five initiatives and individuals selected to lead them include:

  • Retaining the Jaguars – led by Rick Catlett, president, Konica Minolta Gator Bowl;
  • Revitalizing Downtown – led by Ed Burr, president and CEO, GreenPointe Holdings LLC;
  • Addressing Current Affairs – led by Michael Munz, executive vice president, Dalton Agency;
  • Developing Small Businesses – led by Cleve Warren, president, Essential Capital;
  • Enhancing Chamber Member Value – led by Marty Lanahan, area president, Regions Bank.

 “Our community is a wonderful place to work, live and play, but keeping it vibrant takes leadership and commitment, which is why we have selected these leaders to head what we believe are five important initiatives that will support and enhance our business community,” said Wally Lee, president of the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We recently hosted a Board of Governors’ planning session to determine our action items and develop recommendations for implementing each initiative.”
