Margaret Pounder
President/CEO

With a varied background in travel management, agriculture (including an executive director position at a national association), and restaurants, it doesn’t seem like a far stretch to find myself in the position of Executive Director of the Bandon Chamber of Commerce. Throughout our (husband Steve and myself) business lives, we have always, always belonged to a Chamber of Commerce. Investment in the Chamber ultimately helps the entire economic development process so that with a thriving vibrant community, a talented workforce is attracted along with investors, entrepreneurs, and retirees. I truly believe in Chambers of Commerce. And I love inviting others to visit Bandon, helping our merchants and residents alike to thrive.

Lori Osborne
Chair of the Board – 2021

Lori and her husband Barry own and operate three businesses in Bandon. Farm & Sea, located in the Farmers Market building, is their most recent “adventure” – opening in July of 2019. Lori is born and raised in Bandon, loves the community, is very involved in many organizations, and is excited to participate with the Bandon Chamber Board of Directors. She created and executed the First Crab Fest in 2019 and sees future Crab Fests growing even bigger.

Anthony Zunino
Past Chair of the Board

Professionally, I have a history in public safety, including Coos County Law Enforcement and volunteer service with Bandon Rural Fire Department. In 2008, I came up with an idea to transform a hobby into a small business, so Freedom Graphics was born. I have proudly served on numerous committees and chaired the Cranberry Festival committee for the last 5 years.  I also serve as an elected Director for the Bandon Rural Fire Protection District.  I whole-heartedly believe that Bandon is a GREAT place to live and raise our families and am honored to be able to serve to help make sure it stays that way for many years to come!

Larry Langenberg
Treasurer – 2021

After retiring from the U.S. Army, my wife Sheila and I returned to Bandon. We purchased Edgewaters restaurant in 2011 with my brother-in-law Chef Bob Grizzle. We’re proud to manage a family owned business, with more than 30 local and family-member employees. We believe in service to the community, and being on the Bandon Chamber Board is just one way that we can give back.
