Flora Dugbartey is the current Executive Director of the Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce and is responsible for the development and execution of the Chamber’s Strategic plan along with the management of daily operations and personnel.
Before joining the chamber in 2019, Ms. Dugbartey spent over 15 years in the Event planning industry serving in multiple capacities ranging from Events Coordinator to CEO of a Non-profit organization. Her profound expertise in the industry has led to multiple accomplishments including the establishment of an acculturation program to support young Ghanaian American immigrants into the US.
As a thought leader, Ms. Dugbartey shapes her leadership philosophy around servitude which is founded on her passion for helping others and serving her community. She volunteers at The House of Roses, an organization that provides thanksgiving baskets to families in need, toiletries and personal care items to women’s shelters and hosts an annual toy drive for orphanages.
She’s not all work and no play which is why she would give anything to enjoy outdoor activities during her free time. She is an avid reader and enjoys books on human philosophy and world geography. When she’s not reading or zip lining in Ghana, you will most likely find her at a body pump class, throwing a dance party, or jumping up and down on a trampoline with her 3 nieces and nephew, or listening to R&B, Afro beats and gospel which are her favorite genres of music.
Adriana grew up an only child in Southern California and discovered early on that she wanted to grow up helping people, making a difference, and giving back to communities. Moving to Tucson AZ in 1990 Adriana held positions in education, supporting educational programs, staff, and helping kids succeed, and she also held positions in non-profit organizations aimed at helping people in a variety of caring and supporting roles.
After raising three beautiful daughters, Adriana moved back to Southern California a proud Mother and today a proud Grandmother, still enjoying her marriage to her high-school sweetheart and still knowing that she has more to offer her family, friends, career, and her Inland Empire community.
