President and CEO
I’m Laura Terhune, the President & CEO of the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce. While I joined the Midlothian Chamber team in February of 2019, I have been a chamber professional for 25 years. As a resident of Midlothian, I love the warm sense of community among business professionals and citizens. I grew up in rural Perryton, TX and graduated from Abilene Christian University. The Midlothian Chamber of Commerce is on its way to achieving even more in the coming year, and I know we will continue incredible growth as a community.
Membership Benefits Coordinator
After 25 years of non-profit work, Judy Bates came on board as our Membership Benefits Coordinator late last year. Her passion for customer service and efficiency means Judy spends her time getting to know our members and finding ways for the Chamber to increase their business opportunities. Judy has a Bachelor’s degree in marketing and a Master’s in Business Administration.

Shortly after, she was promoted to oversee the major events hosted by the Chamber including the Wine & Arts Festival, Golf Tournament, Awards Party, and Annual Auction & Dinner.

Social Media Manager
Miranda joined the Chamber Staff in July of 2021 as our Social Media Manager. Before joining our team she worked in both corporate and small business Social Media & Content Marketing.
