New Ogden/Weber Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors Formed

Press Release

April 7, 2014

Ogden – Utah Lieutenant Gov. Spencer Cox, Economic Development Utah CEO Todd Brightwell and 60 members of the Ogden business community gathered March 20 to launch the newly formed Ogden/Weber Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors.

The chamber officers and board of directors developed and authorized a new governing structure to accelerate the growth and strengthen the chamber’s impact to the community. The plan includes an executive board and board of governors. The executive board provides ongoing support, oversight and direction for chamber operations. The board of governors engages corporate officers, business owners and community leaders in strategic planning and projects that drive Weber County business and economic development. Additionally, the board of governors will grow executive-level relationships.

“As we look at history of our community, chamber business leaders have always stepped out with initiatives that have motivated the community for positive change,” said Dave Hardman, president of the Ogden/Weber Chamber of Commerce. “We see great things happening now in the community but there are more opportunities to be fulfilled.  With the support of Chamber leaders in the Board of Governors, the Chamber will make even more things happen.”

The first board of governors meeting included information shared by local economic development leaders on development projects already underway in Weber County as well as projects on the drawing board. The Summit Powder mountain project is underway with a planned investment of more than $1 billion. Also under way are redevelopment of the area surrounding the former Marriot Hotel, soon be Courtyard by Marriott, and continued building at the Ogden River urban redevelopment. The board also discussed new commercial and industrial development in network marketing and outdoor recreation.
