ST. PAUL — Dr. Patricia Simmons was re-elected to the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. She is executive medical director for health policy at Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

New officers and board members formally will begin their terms at the Minnesota Chamber's Business Conference on Oct. 8 at the Hilton Minneapolis.

The volunteer board sets public policy priorities for the business community, carries the message for the statewide business community to the State Capitol, and develops resources and strategies to ensure businesses in Minnesota can grow and succeed.

Minnesota Chamber officers are: Chairwoman Jan Kruchoski, Clifton Larson Allen, Minneapolis; Chairman-elect Rick Trontvet, Digi-Key Corp., Thief River Falls; Secretary-treasurer Todd Paulson, RTP Co., Winona; and immediate past Chairman Jeff DeYoung, Baker Tilly, Minneapolis.

"The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce offers businesses unique resources that help them advocate, connect and grow," Kruchoski said.


The Minnesota Chamber is the state's largest business advocacy organization, representing approximately 2,300 businesses and more than a half-million employees. — Mike Klein
