Connie Majure-Rhett, president and CEO of the Wilmington Chamber, has been named to the Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives Board of Directors.

Majure-Rhett, who has more than 35 years of experience in chamber management, was appointed to a one-year term. The CACCE, which gives members the tools to build better home organizations, is made up for executives and staff members of chambers of commerce as well as people from the business community. It was formed in 1994 when the North Carolina and South Carolina associations merged.

In addition to heading Southeastern North Carolina’s largest membership-based business association, Majure-Rhett also serves on the boards of the Blue Ribbon Commission on the Prevention of Youth Violence, the Port Waterway and Beach Commission, the New Hanover County Tourism Development Authority, the Wilmington Convention Center Advisory Board and the Cameron School of Business Executive Advisory Board.

She has been an executive leader with the Wilmington Chamber since 1994 and earned the highest designation for a chamber management professional, Certified Chamber Executive, in 2000. Other recognitions Majure-Rhett has received include being named the Wilmington YWCA Woman of Achievement for Business and Industry in 1998 and the North Carolina Chamber of Commerce Executive of the Year in 2001.
