It's Not Good-bye...
Most of you are already aware that I have resigned from my position as Director of the Yankton CVB.  My last day was Friday, August 12th. I have taken a new position with Mount Marty College as Dean of Enrollment.  In this position I will oversee the Admissions and Financial Aid Office. This decision was full of mixed emotions and I would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me.

I am excited about my new venture and at the same time, I am genuinely sad to be leaving the Yankton CVB. I have been a part of the Chamber for over 3 years and I have had many memorable and enjoyable times working here.  It has been a pleasure representing out great community within the state, region, nation and even internationally!

I would like to thank all of you who have supported, guided and encouraged me over the years. I also appreciated the good wishes I have received from you all after my resignation was made public.  The best part of this change is that I will still be living in Yankton and will get to see many of you again.

If you are up at Mount Marty College, feel free to stop in and see me!  I'd love to see you.  Or, you can send me an email at stephanie.moser@mtmc.edu and we can stay in touch that way.
 
So, it's not good-bye - it's 'I'll see you later!'
