Meet our Board
The Opelika Chamber board of directors is made up of prominent business owners and professionals throughout our community. They help shape the direction of our organization by leading our various committees, including our Small Business Committee, Minority Business Council, Women’s Business Council, Education, Membership & Recognition Committees, and much more. Serving on our board of directors begins with a 1 year commitment, but can result in as many as 6 years, and can also include serving as one of our executive committee members.
If you’re interested in serving on the board of directors, contact Ali Rauch at email@example.com.
Chairman of the Board
Sheriff Jay Jones
Sheriff Jones was first elected Lee County Sheriff in 1998 and is currently serving his fifth term. His educational background includes a BS degree from Auburn University in 1976 and a MS degree from Troy State University in 1980. He is a long standing member of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce and always the first to support our business community sharing safety tips, or just a welcoming smile and congratulations at our many events & ribbon cuttings.
"As Chamber Chair, I am proud to support the chamber and its impact on our entire community."
