The Board of Directors is very excited to introduce you to your new Executive Director, Marianne Melcher.

She's a resident of New Lenox who has been running special events for Catholic Charites in Joliet. Marianne joined the Chamber on July 23rd which just happened to be the same day as our annual Golf Outing! She has already attended several Fall Fest Committee meetings and is very impressed by the enthusiasm and spirit of teamwork she witnessed.

The Board would like to thank all of those who submitted applications...we had many very qualified applicants from which to choose. We also want to thank the Search Committee for all of their time and hard work including committee chair Tom Powers,  Pauline Modjeski, Craig Lyons and Rich Rappold.

Marianne will be out meeting you at our events. Please take the time to introduce yourself to her and welcome her to the Chamber!
