Chamber Picks New Executive Director
Dear Tuscarora Area Chamber of Commerce Members,
If you were not aware, Mary-Anne Gordon has left her post as our executive director, and has moved on to an opportunity in Philadelphia. Mary-Anne was a colleague, and mentor and I wish her the best in her future endeavors. In her nine years as the chamber director, she has grown the organization tremendously. I know that I have big shoes to fill. I extend my thanks to our board of directors, for their support and confidence in me.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve your needs, and I look forward to promoting the Tuscarora region. We are fortunate to live in such a vibrant, community-spirited area, and we are primed for growth. The business community is the key component to keeping this region prosperous.
Here is a bit of background on me: I am a life-long resident of Mercersburg, and a James Buchanan High School graduate. I hold a bachelors degree in public administration from Shippensburg University, and was a graduate of Leadership Franklin County in 2012. Since the young age of ten, I have been involved volunteering with local nonprofits; including, area chambers of commerce. I believe in the mission of our chamber, and I believe in our members.
I am currently involved with several non-profit organizations across the county, and also serve as the board treasurer of the Tuscarora School District.
Friends of mine have given me a few nicknames over the years (some that I probably shouldn't repeat); but, one that is very fitting to me and this position is "Mr. Tuscarora". Over the years, I have invested a lot of time and energy into this region, and I am excited to work full-time for our membership in continuing to enhance the Tuscarora region.
These first few days have been very busy, but in the coming weeks I will be making my way around the area, introducing myself to those members whom I do not know. I am here to serve the chamber and our members, so please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything that we can assist with.
