The Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce has elected its chair of the board — and added three local executives to its governing body.

Douglas A. Dozeman, a partner at the law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd, will chair the local chamber, which represents more than 2,700 businesses. He will serve a one-year term.

Dozeman, who specializes in litigation, has more than 30 years of experience representing businesses and individuals in civil litigation.

The chamber also said this month that its board has added three members: Lew Chamberlin, CEO of the Whitecaps Professional Baseball Corporation, Lynn Afendoulis, director of corporate communications at Universal Forest Products, and Nelson Sanchez, CFO of RoMan Manufacturing.
