New Executive Director Named  

The Hayden Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has hired Diane Higdem as the new Executive Director. 

"The Chamber is more than professional networking, it's also about the friendships we develop within our business community," said Chamber President Wayne Cofield of Knudtsen Chevrolet. "Our primary goal is to foster our businesses and the center of our success is the warmth amongst our members. Diane is the perfect person to carry that mission forward."
Diane has extensive experience working in a chamber of commerce environment, coordinating community-wide events, and in graphic design. She most recently served as the events coordinator for the Coeur d'Alene Chamber.  Diane has an associate's degree in communications from North Idaho College and is a long time Idaho resident. 
Diane will start her new position with the Chamber on Feb. 19 and will replace Erna Rhinehart.  Erna has worked as the Executive Director of the Chamber for the past four years. She's looking  forward  to retiring and will be spending as much time as possible traveling and visiting her family. 

Welcome to the Hayden Chamber Diane!
