I have been a Frankfort Chamber of Commerce member for over 20 years. As a Board of Director, I believe that our Chamber is dependent on our members and they are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to serve them. My goal, as a Board Member, is to exceed our members' expectations of the Chamber. I have lived in Frankfort for over 26 years; married to Marni and have 3 boys. Max attends Indiana University while Tyler and Tanner both attend Lincoln Way East High School.
