We apologize for the delay in sending this week's Chamber e-newsletter!
Installation of Officers & Directors
Plus, recognition of retiring Board Members!
History was changed slightly for the Park Hills – Leadington Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. For the first time in at least 25 years, our Chamber Officers and Directors were officially sworn in somewhere other than our annual Installation & Awards Banquet.

Due to the ongoing challenges, we are all facing with COVID-19, our board has paused plans for the Banquet which usually occurs in January. We plan to host this Chamber favorite event a little later in the year when we all feel a little safer gathering.

Pausing this event, however, presented us with the hurdle of honoring our retiring board members and swearing in our new officers and board members which are scheduled to take office this month. However, there is never a hurdle too big for our board to tackle! For that reason, we opted to hold the official swearing-in ceremony via video immediately following our January Board Meeting.

Watch this video to see the much-deserved recognition of our retiring President, Chelley Odle, and retiring Director, Danielle Basler, as well as the swearing-in of our new board members!
