Chamber Executive Director Update

Dear Chamber Members,

I am happy to report that Sarah Tackett will be returning to the role of Executive Director on Monday, December 5th.  As we, the Board, were conducting the search for her replacement, Sarah communicated to us that she would welcome the opportunity to return.  In view of her past success as Executive Director and a careful assessment of the circumstances that led to her departure, we determined that welcoming her back was in the bests interests of the Chamber.  Sarah has a strong passion for the Chamber and its members and we are confident that she will resume leading the Chamber to increasing success.

The Board also wishes to express our gratitude to Jessica West, our marketing coordinator, who maintained the Chamber’s operations during Sarah’s absence.  Jessica did a fantastic job.  We further look forward to how she will continue to improve the Chamber for its members.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the Board if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for your continued membership and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Ray Meiers,
Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors
