Nathan Ahle, president and CEO of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, has been selected for a national committee.
Ahle is among a dozen new members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Committee of 100, local and state chamber executives who meet regularly and advise the U.S. Chamber board of directors on matters including lobbying, programming, outreach and coalition work.
“On behalf on myself and the entire Fresno Chamber Board of Directors, I’d like to congratulate Nathan on this appointment,” said 2019 Fresno Chamber of Commerce Chair of the Board Wendy Batti. “Not only does this opportunity give Fresno a voice at a larger table, it is another example of the commitment Nathan has to our Chamber and our city. It’s representation like this that makes our dot on the map a bit bigger.”
New Chamber of Commerce Committee of 100 (CCC100) members joining Ahle include the presidents and CEOs of chambers including Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Las Vegas, Nevada; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
“We look forward to the contributions that these new members will provide to the CCC100,” said Sara Armstrong, Vice President at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The CCC100 is one of the most prestigious appointments in the chamber community, and these new members reflect our continued dedication to naming diverse, high-profile leaders from across the country to serve on this important committee.”
