Our mission is to enhance the civic, commercial, industrial, agricultural and economic well-being of the City of Trumann.
Trumann Chamber of Commerce, a non-profit organization founded in 1963, operates under the direction of a Board of Directors as set forth in the By-Laws. Each year 5 members of the Board retire and 5 new members are elected. Officers of the Board consist of a President, President-elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Past-President.
