Board of Advisors

     A key membership program of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce is the Chairman's Board of Advisors, which provides top company executives an avenue for valuable input on critical Chamber and community issues. The Chamber's Board of Directors is limited in number while Mobile is fortunate to have many talented business leaders.

     Because of the quality and depth of business leadership in our area, the Chamber and the Mobile community will benefit from the knowledge, experience and interest of corporate leaders and other business executives not currently serving on the Chamber's Board of Directors. A seat on the Chairman's Board of Advisors includes these benefits:
  • Meetings will offer opportunities to receive advance information pertinent to Mobile's progress, to hear from speakers of timely importance and to be represented as issues about the community's future are discussed
  • Invitations to business announcements, receptions and special events
  • Company recognition plaque displayed in the Chamber Atrium
  • Personal profile in the Chamber's newsletter, The Business View
  • A photograph in the Chamber's annual The Guide to Mobile
