OUR PROUD LEADERS

Leaders Who Shaped Today

While we are excited to bring on our 2019 Board, we are sad to say 'goodbye' to some real leaders who have given then Chamber a breath of new life. Many of these leaders will remain prominent heads of our community and will continue to serve the North Bay and business community in their future endeavors. We will miss them all and wish them the best of luck.

Cliver, Don

Donald Cliver

UMPQUA BANK
Leadership Novato Graduate | 2012
Novato Chamber President | 2016 & 2017

Don Cliver's second term on the Novato Chamber board came to a halt after Umpqua relocated him to a store in Santa Rosa. However, he left a lasting legacy with the Novato Chamber. Under his leadership and as President of the Chamber for two-years, he implemented massive marketing changes that would give the Chamber strength in its messaging. Thanks to Don, we are where we are today. He will be missed, we hope for the best in his endeavors 

After serving the Novato Chamber Don plans to continue volunteer and give back to Rotary and other North Bay business foundations.

Downtown Novato Cheryl Jennings ABC7 News Loma Prieta Afghanistan Guest Speaker Key Note Address San Francisco Oakland Bay Area Greece

I get to tell stories of the most interesting and challenging subjects one can imagine. My work has taken me around the world to Mexico, Kosovo (twice), Afghanistan (twice), South Africa, Korea, Israel, the West Bank, Vietnam, and Peru!

I always try to do something that helps people. Along the way, I love the adventure, risk-taking, meeting new people and finding the connections to the Bay Area. My new role at ABC7/KGO TV allows me to travel a bit more for work to find those California connections that are changing the world.

"My parents taught me the value of hard work, perseverance and public service. Mom stayed home and raised 7 children, while Dad served in the U.S. Army for more than 20 years"

 I am the eldest daughter, so I got plenty of experience changing diapers, feeding babies and baby-sitting! 

Dad's work took us all over the world, including two tours in Germany. Dad also served in Vietnam and Korea. I changed schools more than a dozen times before high school! That part was tough..."

Anchoring the 5pm news for 25 years!! I've been told that is a record for a woman in this market! It's hard to believe. I am so grateful that our viewers have placed their trust in me for so long.

In 2003, I co-founded a program to remove landmines in war torn countries. It's the "Roots of Peace Children's Penny Campaign." Bay Area school children helped raise 50 million pennies to remove landmines in Afghanistan
