Coyne, was inducted as the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce's 2017 President by Park Ridge Acting Mayor Marty Maloney during the Chamber's Installation Ceremony on January 10, 2017 at 9:00 AM. The ceremony provided members with an opportunity to recognize the accomplishments from the previous year and welcome the new Board of Directors.

Eric Nelson will continue to serve on the Board of Directors as Past President while Shawn P. Cook, a Wealth Advisor with SAGE Private Wealth Group, was appointed as the President-Elect.
