Membership Announcement
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the North Central Chamber of Commerce, I would like to notify you, the Chamber membership, that it is with regret that we inform you of the resignation of our current Chamber Executive Director - Deborah Ramos.  Deb joined the Chamber in 2006 and became President/Executive Director in 2009.
We are, of course, saddened to see her leave and certainly wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.  It is not to go unsaid that we thank her for her dedication and commitment to the North Central Chamber, its programs and more importantly it’s Membership.  We know that she dedicated many years to working diligently to help our members grow their business in our local communities. 
Deb’s last day will be Friday, May 22nd.

The Board of Directors’ has been working closely to recruit a new Executive Director.  With that said, I would like to announce Jamie Dufresne as our new Executive Director effective June 1st.  Jamie brings with her a wide range of Chamber knowledge through her current position as Marketing Director for The Children’s Workshop.  In addition, she currently serves as Secretary for the Board of Directors; therefore, she has current knowledge of the North Central Chamber and its programs.  With her marketing background, we expect her to be an asset to the Chamber office and its membership.
Deb has offered and will work closely with Jamie over the next few weeks and months to ensure a smooth transition for our membership and the Chamber’s upcoming events.

If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at (401) 949-3630 or by email at dorothsn@yahoo.com.  Also feel free to contact any of our Board of Directors or Ambassadors – please visit our website at www.ncrichamber.com for information.
