Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce President David Haynes has announced he is retiring, effective June 30.

Since being hired in 2014, Haynes has led the chamber, its membership and staff through an uptick of overall members, an increase of advocacy efforts, creation of the regional initiative West Central Indiana 2025, the implementation of casino legislation support with “Terre Haute Is All In” and the adoption of Downtown Terre Haute as a branch of the chamber.

Haynes says he plans to spend more time with his wife of 46 years, Nancy, their four sons and six grandchildren. A longtime attorney, he will continue to practice law into retirement.
