The Detroit Regional Chamber is proud to celebrate Chief Operating Officer Tammy Carnrike, who has been named one of the 2022 Crain’s Detroit Business Notable Women in Nonprofits.
Carnrike was recognized for her responsibility in governance, events and programming, leadership initiatives, fundraising, and daily oversight of one of the largest metropolitan chambers of commerce in the United States.
Crain’s also recognized her leadership in chamber management. Carnrike has served as Chair of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Organization Management board of trustees and as a member of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives board, in addition to achieving the group’s highest professional designation as a certified chamber executive. Carnrike serves on the Michigan advisory committee of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition and the National Rainmakers Council for metropolitan chambers of commerce.

Her extensive network of friends and supporters extends her influence far beyond her official Chamber duties,” Sandy K.
