TERRE HAUTE -- Two area business leaders have been named to the Indiana Chamber of Commerce board of directors.
Effective immediately, Janet Madden Charles, president and CEO of Envirotech Construction Corp., and David Wulf, vice president of administration for Templeton Coal Company, Inc., will join the board.
Charles, representing Clay County, and Wulf, representing Vigo County, are among the more than 180 Indiana Chamber board members who are presidents, CEOs and high-level executives from companies throughout the state.
The Indiana Chamber is dedicated to providing member companies with numerous cost-saving benefits and timely information that will enable them to grow their businesses. The Chamber represents nearly 5,000 companies that employ 800,000 Hoosier workers.
The Indiana Chamber's board of directors plays a vital role in developing all aspects of the organization's business advocacy efforts. Members serve on various committees that research key topics and define policy positions for adoption by the entire board each fall.
The positions are used by the Indiana Chamber's advocacy team to initiate and evaluate legislation at the Statehouse and in Congress.
"Janet and Dave are proven leaders for their companies and the community. I welcome them to their newest roles as Indiana Chamber board members and thank them for their commitment to promoting economic and job growth in the state," Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar said.
Charles will serve a three-year term as an Indiana Chamber board member through 2014. Wulf will serve a two-year term.
