The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Keith Braun has been selected by the Board of Directors to serve as the President of the organization. Braun has served on the Chamber’s Board of Directors since 2014, as the representative for Paul Smith’s College where he serves as Director of Admissions. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead the chamber board,” said Braun, “we have a great group of leaders and wide variety of talents within the Board of Directors and the Chamber’s Professional Staff.”
According to Braun, the Chamber’s Board of Directors is currently engaged in a strategic planning process. The board has identified several topics that the Chamber will be a leader in addressing, including workforce development. With many different organizations working towards similar goals, the Chamber will also serve as the convener – bringing together many groups to best serve the community, execute events, and develop partnerships. The chamber will be presenting the developing strategic plan to its membership over the next few months.
“The Board of Directors is passionate about serving the Chamber’s membership and the greater Saranac Lake area,” Said Adrienne Relyea, the SLACC Executive Director, “there is a fresh energy in the chamber; I am looking forward to where we’re headed.”
Braun and Relyea agree that input from the chamber’s membership is a key to success. SLACC Members and other community stakeholders are encouraged to get involved in the chamber. For more information contact Adrienne Relyea, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (518) 891-1991.
