Executive Director Chamber of Commerce
Well we are at the 4 month period of my new and challenging job as your Chamber Director. Wow, have we been busy! I am amazed every day how many wonderful business owners we have here in Fitzgerald. I have only been to see a few of you and I continue to hear positive things. Yes, I hear that we need industry and we need jobs and we need, we need, we need....... All of you are correct! We do need those, yet what my focus is on, is taking care of those businesses that we do have. I am charged with carrying the torch for all of you. Together we can get past what was and focus on what is possible by working together, supporting hometown and moving us forward. Fitzgerald is a great place to live and if we just open our eyes and look around we would see, no she is not what she once was but she has the potential to be so much more and she is.

The Chamber is YOUR chamber; it is made up of people just like you. If I haven't seen you yet have no fear, I am coming! I want to get to know each and every one of you. Stop by the Chamber I would love to meet with you, hear the ideas you have and build on your positive attitudes.
