I’d like to commend our Executive Director, Christine Cribb, and our board on revitalizing our Chamber and pushing us into the future. With their hard work, the Chamber has seen 24% growth in membership, and established themselves as an integral part of the Cleveland County business community, while also strengthening community partnerships as a whole. Additionally, I am honored the board elected me as their first African American board chair. I look forward to what the future holds in Cleveland County.
