The GNFCC Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring the organization’s long-term financial stability and integrity.  Directors set the strategic plan and ensure that the organization fulfills its mission by doing quality work through its staff and volunteers.

The governance of the Chamber, the management of its affairs, the direction of its work and the control of its property are vested in the Board. Board members represent diverse business types and sizes from each of our six municipalities: Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park, Roswell, and Sandy Springs.
