Becky Thatcher-Keller and Jason Rohr from the Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce spoke at the recent Rotary Club meeting. They were introduced by Rotarian Quincy Backen.
Rohr, who is the new president of the Chamber Board of Directors, has lived in Jamestown for 20 years and works at Ag Country Services. He said he is excited about the direction of the chamber and what it has to offer to the community. The chamber has been an advocate for business since 1929, and has been a partner to local and regional businesses, assisting in serving, leadership and helping grow the community and region.
Thatcher-Keller, chamber executive director, talked about the many customer service awards and over 37 ribbon cuttings provided this year. She talked about the chamber’s role in helping solve the communication problem with Century Link with cut cables. She also talked about Main Street projects and training events that have been provided to over 40 businesses. Chamber membership benefits businesses or organizations in several ways, they said. They include networking, marketing, leadership/management development, advocacy, education and promotion of events.
