“We are very pleased to have found someone of David’s caliber, skills and experience to lead the Chamber into the future,” said Dave Butler, Chamber President. “He has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and clearly understands the needs of business and the role that a local Chamber can and should play in meeting those needs.”
