Director of Finance
An MBA whose job title reads “bean counter,” Frank Cudia is not your average bean counter. Actually he hates to count the beans – he’d much rather spend his focused energy on the big picture, the profit and loss ledger lines that tell whether key projects can get done and a business prospers. “I’m not one to worry about minutia,” he said. “I worry about the big numbers.”
But as head of finance for the Chamber of Commerce,everything financial goes through him.
Throughout his adult years, Frank Cudia has been in many professional positions that involved leadership, creativity, adherence to rules and other pieces crucial to starting, growing and maintaining a solid business. From the U.S. Air Force to electronics / computer technology* to securities and insurance, Cudia has shared his business development mentality with the Chamber since 2007 as the Director of Finance and Retention.

Amanda gained a deep love for the both the arts and the outdoors while growing up in Butte, Montana. Active in the local theater, she would spend her spare time either on stage, or hiking around the Highlands where she lived.
After high school, Amanda attended her first year of college at Montana State University, and then spent a semester enrolled in the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Missoula was next for Amanda, where she finished college with a degree in Business Administration-Marketing and a certificate in Entertainment Management from the University of Montana.
Amanda has a passion for music and sang for a few local bands right after college while working full-time. Amanda met her husband in Missoula and moved with him to Maryland for 4 years. After gaining some great work and life experience, they made the decision to come back to Missoula to put down roots. The mountains, the local arts and music scene, and most importantly the people who give this special place a sense of community are what make Amanda proud to once again be a Missoulian.
Today, you'll find Amanda hiking around with her husband and 2 dogs or enjoying a concert, a ski hill, or a great restaurant.
