Join us in expressing gratitude for Ian’s impactful contributions to the Chamber and community. Reach out before his departure on Nov. 30 or come say “hi” in person at our Business After Hours this Thursday, Nov. 16 at the Holiday Inn
  2. Megan Morris Assumes Interim Role: Chamber VP Megan Morris steps into the Interim President & CEO position, leveraging her 2+ years of experience and passion for our community. Confident in her abilities, we welcome Megan as she officially takes the helm on Dec. 1.
  3. Search for Successor: A thorough executive search will identify the Chamber’s next President and CEO. Details on the search process, including profiles and timelines, will be shared soon. Share your thoughts on the ideal candidate profile with us.
  4. Steadfast Focus: Through this change, our commitment to promoting economic prosperity is unwavering. The Chamber’s mission persists—to support local businesses through advocacy, information, and connections.
  5. You Are the Chamber: The Chamber’s strength lies in its membership. Established in 1892, it thrives through collective efforts. Now, more than ever, engage with us—attend events, join committees, follow us on social media, and consider upgrading your membership. This is your Chamber; your involvement is crucial.
