Edgewood Chamber Friday Blast 7.11.14

  Friday Blast
    JULY11, 2014
The Edgewood Chamber
…working for you!We’ve had some excitement at the Edgewood chamber:

First President Chris Hopper had to resign from the board because of his increased workload.

Then Executive Director Madeline Heitzman resigned to relocate.

But this chamber doesn’t let the grass grow under our feet…

Vice President Robin Markley stepped up and will take the helm of the Chamber for the rest of the year.  The Board quickly contracted
Brenda Murray, our very excellent Program Director and co-founder
of Leadership Edgewood
to serve as our new
Executive Director!

Madeline will be around through Run Rally Rock, and both women
will be working together to insure a seamless transition!

Stop by for a
Hail and Farewell!

We are looking for someone interested in serving on the Board of Directors through December of this year.  If you are interested, call the office,

or call President Robin Markley

at 270-9092
Leadership Edgewood

Graduation will take place on July 18

at the beautiful home of

Peggy and Skip Mead.
We will be combining our July Mixer hosted by SASS that night.

Look for the mini blast invitation in your email
later this morning!
