Algoma Chamber Executive Director steps down

The Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce announced Tuesday that it is beginning a search for a new executive director. Kay Smith has left the organization for another opportunity, effective as of October 19th. Chamber Board President Tracy Nelson says employees are busy with the Friendly Algoma guidebook, as staff put the finishing touches on this year’s edition. That will push back the interview process until December. Nelson is hoping for a hire to be in place by February 1st, 2021. She says the position requires working with members and attracting new businesses to prepare for a rebound next year.


Nelson says discussions are already underway regarding the Concerts in the Park series and Shanty Days. She expects events to happen, even if COVID restrictions are still in place, and adjustments are necessary.
