by Ellen Timmerman-Borer, Greater Wayzata Area Chamber of Commerce Board Chair
After years of remarkable service, Peggy Douglas has decided to retire from her position at the Greater Wayzata Area Chamber of Commerce. Peggy has served almost 17 years, with 14 of them as chamber president. Beginning in 2013, she will be taking time to travel, enjoy family and friends and just relax.
Peggy first served as the chamber president from 1992 to 1999 when she was involved in expanding the membership, increasing staff, introducing technology to chamber operations and making each event a profit center. She returned in 2006 to face a very challenging time when the chamber needed solid leadership. Peggy has advanced the chamber, promoted business, developed exceptional relationships and has undoubtedly been a prominent influence in the city of Wayzata and surrounding area.
The Executive Committee of the Board will be conducting a search for Peggy's successor and have a tentative timeline to fill the position by year-end 2012. Peggy has generously offered to provide leadership during the transition. If you are aware of a viable candidate for the position please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the Chamber Board of Directors, we are grateful for the opportunity to have served with Peggy and her competent team.
