Cizek to lead Oak Brook Chamber

November 17, 2010

Jerry Cizek, president of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, was installed March 15 for a one-year term as chairman of the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce. The CATA office is in Oakbrook Terrace.


Cizek leads a 14-person board of directors and more than 250 members of the area’s business community who are interested in attracting and retaining businesses to the area.


The chamber marks its 40th anniversary in 2007 by launching new efforts in the areas of commercial development, government affairs and technology. For instance, chamber leaders are working with local municipal officials to find funding to widen the roadway of a robust stretch of commerce: 22nd Street in Oakbrook Terrace.


Chamber members also discuss improved traffic flow in the area and legislative issues that impact them, including Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s recently proposed gross-receipts tax. The Village of Oak Brook also is considering a sales tax increase.
