The Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitor's Center has a new Executive Director who is a familiar name to area residents.
The Board of Directors has named Kim Emerson as the new director. Emerson joined the Chamber 13 years ago as Events Coordinator.
Emerson says the community is very important to her...
"...this is a wonderful community to work with...the businesses in the area, the visitors to the area. Just being who we are is an important part of what we've done in the past and I look forward to doing in the future...."
Eagle River's longtime Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Connie Heeg has resigned.
In a letter to chamber members, Heeg says he's stepping down due to health concerns.
Heeg has worked for the chamber more than 13 years.
Among the accomplishments he cited was a doubling of the number of business memberships, paying off the chamber building in just over 6 years, bringing the Pond Hockey Championships to the area and others.
