Hello everyone! I am Stephanie Harcleroad, Executive Assistant Director of the Benton County/Camden Chamber of Commerce. Most of you know by now that Jenna Cole-Wilson resigned as Executive Director, and Friday June 7 was her last day.
Although we are sad that she will no longer be with us, we are very happy and excited for her new career opportunities! The Chamber Board and I wish her well, and we are extremely proud of her and the great work she has done in Benton County.
During this time of transitioning to a new director, a position for which the board will be interviewing soon, I will continue with the weekly Chamber Article. I will continue with my current Executive Assistant position, a role in which I feel confident and knowledgeable.
For those who do not know me well, I look forward to the chance to get to know you. You can also contact me at 731-584-8395, and I am available to help you or your business in any way that I can.
