NEW DIRECTOR, NEW GOALS FOR 2019
January 7, 2019, ELKINS — With the start of the new year and a new director at the helm, (the Chamber) has high hopes to boost economic development in the area.
Elkins-Randolph County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lisa Wood began her tenure with the organization on Nov. 7 and is proud of the Chamber’s accomplishments.
“I’m proud that the Chamber provides many different events/activities that support business in our area, while also providing events that benefit its citizens. I use the Christmas Parade held last month and the Legislative Luncheon held this week as examples of each,” she continued. “The Christmas parade was cold, snowy, and held on a day of national mourning, but it was also fun and meaningful for both the participants and on-lookers alike. And the Legislative Luncheon fits perfectly with our mission to advocate, educate, and network to enhance business opportunities in Elkins & Randolph County.”
