This is an exciting time for the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce as we welcome in new
individuals to our Chamber Board of Directors. The Board is made up of 15 business
members voted in by our membership body. “As we turn the page on our 2021/2022 fiscal
year and welcome our 2022/2023 fiscal year, we at the Chamber are excited to charge
forward with strong community leaders” says Bo Hellams, Executive Director of the
Bullhead Area Chamber.
Chamber board members serve in two-year terms, though many board members enjoy
their time with the Chamber and stay for additional terms. This year we welcome Bill Smith
– General Manager of Anderson Ford Bullhead City, Brent Parsons – CEO of WARMC, Maria
Pynakker – Outreach Coordinator for Living Waters Hospice, Heidi Hosley Ford – Branch
Manager of US Bank, and Robert Hazlegrove – Owner of Drifting Bistro LLC.
These five new board members, accompanied with our existing board members, are a
quality representation of our membership demographic from bridge to bridge. The Chamber
currently has 543 members. 50% of the total membership body is made up of businesses
with 1-5 employees. Members of the board have either owned their own business or are
currently running their own business and strive to maintain a progressive mindset as they
lead the Chamber into the future. It is the goal of our Chamber to support the growth of
better business from bridge to bridge and these five new board members are here to assist
staff in achieving that goal.
For the start of this new fiscal year, we welcome Karen Summitt of Summitt’s River Realty
as the Chair of our Chamber. Our new board is comprised of Karen Summitt, Cindy Head,
Rick Campos, Patty Stewlow, Janice Berkenheger, John Hassett, Steve LeSueur, Melody
DuMouchel, Ellen Brown, Kevin Nestrick, Bill Smith, Brent Parsons, Maria Pynakker, Heidi
Hosley Ford, and Robert Hazlegrove. We at the Chamber thank all our current and past
board members for all they do and have done to help better our business community.
