February 13, 2017|

I am honored and excited to serve as president and CEO of the North Augusta Chamber of Commerce. What an amazing time to be a part of the North Augusta Chamber and the community. New businesses are coming on board, member engagement is increasing and we have an opportunity to lead North Augusta to new levels.

I am pleased to announce the Chamber’s 2017 Board of Directors. The members of the Board of Directors are representatives of the Chamber’s general membership and have ultimate responsibility for Chamber operations. Filled with hardworking, knowledgeable community leaders, the board reviews and evaluates approval of policies, programs and projects which serve the best interest of the community and the Chamber.

I’d also like to give a special thank you to outgoing board members who helped us reach a number of milestones during their tenure, including accreditation in 2016 with the Carolina’s Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. They are: Rechelle Dallas (The Star); Michelle Jones (Georgialina Physical Therapy); Sandra Jordan (USC Aiken); and Ken Kehr (Growth Coach).
