“Over the many years that Katy has worked with the Chamber, she has shown incredible initiative, skill, and leadership. During this past year, Katy was the driving force for the Chamber to sustain itself and successfully face the challenges presented by Covid 19. I am confident that Katy possesses the talent needed for the Chamber to continue to fulfill its mission in the years to come,” said Board President, Linda Steele.
