L. John MacMartin Announces Plans to Retire in 2022
Minot Area Chamber EDC announces that President L. John MacMartin will be retiring in 2022. The Board of Directors started succession planning earlier this fall and will be announcing further details after the first of the year.

“John’s passion, commitment and hard work on behalf of our organization and community is greatly appreciated. One of John’s greatest strengths is how he collaborates with community partners and brings people together,” said Minot Area Chamber EDC Chair Jonn Knecht.

Randy Hauck, Search Committee Chair added, “We are fortunate to have steady leadership in place as we made the transition into a newly merged organization this past year. As we look for our next President, we are focused on finding a strong leader who believes in our mission and can continue to advance key initiatives forward.”

It is the mission of the Minot Area Chamber EDC to advocate for and invest in business activity by being a collaborative partner in the community, focused on improving quality of life for all.

“I will continue to be an advocate and champion for business and growth in our region and I couldn’t be more proud of all that our community and region has accomplished,” said MacMartin. “I look forward to working alongside the board as they start the search for a new President and will help wherever I can with the transition to new leadership for our great organization.”

John MacMartin came to Minot to serve as president of Minot Area Chamber of Commerce and started August 15, 1990. In October 2019, John was named the interim President for Minot Area Development Corporation, while continuing in his role at the Chamber. In December 2020, the two organizations merged into the current Minot Area Chamber EDC and named John as the President.
