"We're honored to receive this award from the business community. We value our opportunity to partner with them," says Deb Whisler, Director of Communications and Marketing.

Whisler was also an honoree. She received the 2011 President's Award from outgoing president Cindee Manaves for her mentoring and continuing contributions to the Chamber of Commerce.

In the coming year, three library staff members will have leadership roles in the Chamber. IT Manager Mike Driskell joins the Board of Directors, Business Librarian Shannon Scanlan will be Co-Chair of the Chamber's Professional Women's Council and Lead Cataloger Jennifer Nitch continues as Chairman of the Young Professionals. We look forward to a great year and continuing a successful collaboration with the business community.
