Change in leadership of Georgetown chamber

GEORGETOWN – There is a change in leadership of the Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce.

Chambers were alerted last week that the Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce board of directors have accepted the resignation of executive director Karen Duffield.

Ms. Duffield’s final day with the chamber was Friday, Oct. 14.

In the interim, the board of directors will be in charge of daily operations.

“Soon, we will appoint an interim director as we will begin our search for an executive director who can lead the chamber to bigger and better things in the coming months and years,” Angela Emerson, GGCOC president, said in a correspondence to chamber members. “We thank Karen for her years of dedicated service and we wish her well on her future endeavors.”

Ms. Emerson said in the very near future, a committee comprised of chamber members will be formed to begin “searching for our next executive director. In the interim, the office will remain open and staffed and your questions and concerns will be addressed in a timely manner.”

“Thank you for your patience as we work toward a better future for the Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce,” Ms. Emerson said.
