Meyers appointed to head G-A Chamber
The Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors recently appointed Valerie Meyers as the new Executive Director by an unanimous vote.
Meyers assumed the role of interim executive director in June of 2020 with the departure of Georgina Cranston. Cranston served the Chamber for five years before moving into her current position with the Small Business Development Center at Shippensburg University.
Meyers has been at the Chamber since September 2015. She served in the capacity of executive assistant, fulfilling multiple administrative responsibilities and acting as community liaison for Chamber events such as Sidewalk Days and Heritage Christmas . She also provided administrative support for Chamber business.
Her role as executive director will include expanded member relations, legislative advocacy, strategic planning for the Chamber and the G-A community, and Chamber representation among the broader Franklin County business sector.
“Moving Valerie into the Executive Director role was an easy decision,” Board President Stan Flenner said. “Valerie has guided our Chamber flawlessly since being appointed to the interim position in a very difficult year.”
“I am honored to be named the Chamber’s executive director,” Meyers said. “Chambers serve vital roles for our member businesses; acting as conduits for the fast-changing legislative climate; offering encouragement and support for our small businesses, and strengthening business-to-business relationships among our members. The members of the G-A Chamber amaze me with their ambition and fortitude; and I look forward to continuing to support them and to see our community thrive.”
