Auburn Area Chamber elects board members for 2011-14

The Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce has announced its five elected board members for the 2011-14 term.

The five newly elected board members are:

• Tonya Clark, community involvement director, Sam's Club

• Larry Coomes, CEO, Auburn Regional Medical Center

• Scott Hulet, campus administrator, Wesley Homes Lea Hill

• David Kwok, general manager, Comfort Inn

• Cathy Wegner, job developer, Orion

"We are pleased to have so much talent available in our membership that are willing to serve," said Nancy Wyatt, president and COO for the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber holds a election each May to select five members to serve three-year terms beginning on July 1. The audit committee reviews the board of directors' election ballot tally and ratifies it.

The new members will join 16 others who are serving on the board.

Established in 1925, the Chamber has been serving the communities of Auburn, Algona, Pacific and unincorporated south King and north Pierce counties for 86 years.

The Chamber is a private, nonprofit, member-supported, volunteer-led organization. Our primary purpose is to focus and direct the resources of the business community to maintain and expand commerce in the region.

The Chamber has 500-plus business partners and is governed by a 21-member board of directors. The professional staff consists of four full-time employees and two contractors who carry out the program of work as established by the board.
