MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT
Message from the Board President
It is with great sadness to report the sudden passing of our Executive Director Michele Jones on July 29, 2021. Michele was one of four founding members of the Evans Area Chamber of Commerce back in 1984. She was the third Executive Director in the Chamber’s history.
Upon hearing of Michele’s passing, the Board of Directors Executive Committee met to discuss the vacancy. We discussed the need of filling the position in a timely manner, adopted a Job Description and Expectations and received nominations of people to apply for the position.
With the approval of the full Board, we set up an Interview committee consisting of : Troy Negrete, Board Vice President, Dawn Fuentes, Board Member and Executive Secretary, Lew Sevestre, Board Member, and Tony Miller from First Farm Bank.
They held three interviews and had a clear choice to lead this great organization.
With that, I would like to introduce to you our new Executive Director, Jennifer McRae.
Jennifer comes to us with 32 years combined customer service experience, over 10 years in event management and planning and many years experience in fund raising, networking, budgeting and funding development.
Jennifer started this position on Tuesday September 7, 2021 and is looking forward to meeting the members of “The Best Chamber in the Area. She has already jumped in to help with the organization of our annual Halloween Softball Costume Tournament.
Please join me in giving Jennifer a “Warm Welcome” to the Chamber.
President, Board of Directors
