Highland Chamber of Commerce Losing Executive Director

The Highland County Chamber of Commerce will be losing it’s executive director, Tiffany White, at the end of 2014. White, who has served the Chamber in various capacities since high school, will be resigning her position to focus on furthering her education.

“I began working for the Chamber as a schooled work program as a senior in high school. I had worked with the Chamber of Commerce as assistant director for about 5 years prior to becoming executive director in January 2012. I will be leaving the Chamber December 31st, and that will mark 3 years that I’ve served as executive director.”

“I’m currently taking online classes with Liberty University for a Bachelors in early childhood education. That is definitely my career goal, and it is becoming a little bit more difficult to juggle both things, so I’ve decided to just continue pursuing my schooling.”

Ms White says she has enjoyed her time with the Chamber.

“Probably the most that I have enjoyed with this position is getting to meet new people, whether it’s vendors during Maple Festival and Hands and Harvest, or just people that have moved to the area, and even some of the locals that I didn’t know as well before, and to be able to work with them in promoting the county and businesses here.”

Board President Teresa Wagner had praise for White’s work during her tenure, along with best wishes for her future endeavors.

“Tiffany White has been really instrumental in carrying out the Camber’s mission as a whole, and in the huge success of our annual Maple Festival. She’s been a real asset to the Chamber, and has worked hard in the position, and we’re sorry to see her go.”

“The Chamber’s Board of Directors wishes Tiffany every success as she moves on in pursuit of her goals. And of course, the Chamber Board is beginning the recruitment process for a new director.”

The Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to promote Highland County as a visitor’s destination, and help local businesses grow and prosper.
