Chamber Leadership

Board of Directors

The Eden Prairie Chamber of Commerce organization is overseen by a Board of Directors. The Board is composed of Chamber Member business representatives who volunteer their time to ensure that the Chamber is able to support the Eden Prairie business community in the best way possible.

We’re diving into 2024 with a vision for success! Ruth Gardner, 2024 Chamber Board President and C.H. Robinson representative unveils an inspiring New Year’s message setting the tone and unveiling new initiatives for the chamber ahead. These themes and initiatives will help to shape our business community’s future.
