New executive director of the Merritt and District Chamber of Commerce excited about the future.
She may have only started this week, but Megan Preston says she is eager to hit the ground running, and both grow membership, and the profile of the chamber.
"My responsibility is the day-to-day operations of the chamber. I'll be working out of the office most days, but will also be focused on growing our membership numbers, and along with the board, coming up with new and exciting ways to grow the brand."
The Merritt and District Chamber of Commerce currently has more than 200 members.
Preston, who has spent the majority of her working career in communications, is replacing Etelka Gillespie, who took a job with Vision Merritt last month.
