Cook County Chamber of Commerce

Cook County Chamber hiring a member relations manager

Since the Cook County Chamber was formed about eight years ago, Executive Director Jim Boyd has been the only employee, working under the direction of a very dedicated chamber board. That will be changing soon, as the chamber is looking to hire a Member Relations Manager.

The chamber decided to hire someone to be a part-time Member Relations Manager to complement the work done by Executive Director Boyd, which is primarily policy-focused.

Traditionally, Chambers of Commerce have served as a place for businesses to gather and to learn from one another, sometimes in after-work get-togethers. Figuring out how to host such events will be the role of this new chamber employee.

The Member Relations Manager will also serve as outreach to businesses who have not yet joined the Cook County Chamber, to find out why they haven’t joined–and what they would like to see the chamber doing here on the North Shore.

The deadline to apply is May 21. The application and information can be found on the Chamber’s Facebook page.
