Sandy, OR, January 22, 2013.The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce announced today the resignation of SACC Board President Laura Allen.

At its January meeting, the board elected two new directors to fill existing vacancies on the executive committee: Madeleine Eno (In The Write Place), President; Lisa Foster-Albertus (LT Travel), Vice President.

“As we start the new year, the board is ready and eager to get back to work on behalf of Chamber members,” said Eno. “Our goal is to revitalize the programs we offer and enhance the benefits of being a member—and to stay connected with members as we keep our eyes on our mission: ‘Supporting business. Growing community.’”
In other changes, Office Manager Karey Milne has taken on additional responsibilities as the Chamber’s new Member Services Manager. Vice-President Lisa Foster-Albertus will chair the newly reinstituted Ambassadors program, which will create more opportunities for members to visit and shop at area businesses.
