  • Santa Maria Chamber CEO Elected to Serve on Regional Chamber Board

    Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Glenn Morris has been elected to serve on the WACE (Western Association of Chamber Executives) Board of Directors as their Chairman-Elect.

    Morris, who has served on the WACE Board in previous years and has been actively involved in their organization, says the position is a great opportunity to learn from his peers and other Chamber leaders.

     “I’m honored to be asked by my peers to serve in a leadership position on the WACE Board,” Morris said. “The opportunity to interact with some of the best Chamber leaders in the country on a regular basis makes me smarter, and hopefully leads to improvements in how we serve our community.”
    Todd Sanders, who serves as President/CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber, was elected Chairman of the WACE Board for 2019. Sanders agrees the opportunity to interact with other industry leaders is a huge benefit to being part of the WACE Board of Directors. 

    “Serving on the WACE board allows Chamber executives to work with a diverse group of industry leaders to identify common challenges, develop practical solutions and create new growth opportunities for our members,” Sanders said. “It is truly on an honor to be selected as this year’s WACE Chairman and I look forward to working with our incoming Chairman Glenn Morris, outgoing Chair Brad Hicks, WACE President Dave Kilby and his accomplished team.”

    Morris also wanted to acknowledge the support he received from the Santa Maria Valley Chamber staff and the Santa Maria Valley Chamber Board of Directors. “It is the support system here locally that allows me to take opportunities like serving on the WACE Board,” Morris explained. “Having a reliable team locally is what affords me the opportunity to take leadership positions like this one that will ultimately benefit our local Chamber and community as a whole”.
