The committee tasked with finding a new president of the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce expects to complete the interviewing process by Dec. 1.
Reporting to the chamber’s board of directors last Friday, search committee member Kathy Wilbanks reported that the committee had “a fairly good number of resumes” that each member reviewed and had selected three finalists.
“We are setting up interviews,” Wilbanks said. “We expect to have them completed by Dec. 1. We will evaluate those results and determine which way to proceed from there.”
The committee has been at work since Shane Short resigned in August.
Treasurer Jim Shaw also had good news to report regarding the organization’s finances.
The group, he said, had $53,754 on hand. That’s up from a low of about $17,000 at the end of June, and it’s up by $3,000 over the past month.
“When cash is up, that’s a good sign,” Shaw, a banker, quipped. He pointed out that for October both income and expenses were approximately $8,000 under budget.
Year to date, income is $23,700 under budget, but expenses are $46,525 under budget, “so it’s still a good combination,” Shaw concluded.
President-elect Mark Valentine announced the recommendations for new directors from the Nominating Committee.
They include Charles Schrauth, BSI Search & Consultants; Tracy Jordan, West Jackson Medical Center; Josh Griffin, Wellspring Camp; Bill Cornell, Precision Planning; Van Yath, Spherion; and alternate David Harris, VF Outlet.
The board will vote on the slate at its Dec. 21 meeting.
