NORTH CREEK - The Gore Mountain Regional Chamber of Commerce appointed several new members during a recent special meeting.
Mike Bowers stepped down from the board because of the time he commits to his various business interests in town. He was unable to be as involved as he would have liked, he said.
Upon his announcement, the chamber offered a seat to Anna Bowers, which she accepted.
"We look forward to having Anna's involvement and have asked her to serve on our marketing and website committees," said chamber president Dave Bulmer. "I nominated Anna because she is actively involved in managing and building business in the community."
The board also offered an open seat to Kristie Clune of Saratoga. Clune boasts an excellent business background and enjoys all that the Adirondacks has to offer.
Clune did not accept the original job offer due to travel time from the Saratoga area.
The chamber board instead appointed two part-time members to the board to fill the open seat. Pat Hamilton and KC Latchford recently accepted and joined the board.
"We are finding that having two part-time members instead of one full time person is giving us much better flexibility in staffing and offers us the expertise of two people with vast experience in the business world," said Bulmer.
Both Hamilton and Latchford are local to the area and bring extensive business backgrounds, professionalism and excitement to the chamber office.
The chamber is now complete at 10 members, including four officers.
The chamber is currently managing several marketing initiatives including a branding project for the Gore Mountain region as well as spearheading the new Adirondack Adventure Festival.
