Chamber seeks new director

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Nevada Daily Mail

The Nevada/Vernon County Chamber of Commerce announced Friday that following the resignation of executive director Gina Ensor earlier this week they are actively seeking a replacement.

"I love my job and Nevada, but my family comes first. This is a difficult decision, though. I know it is the right thing for my family," said Ensor, who will travel on business with her husband and their two daughters.

According to a release from the chamber its membership has grown by more than 70 percent during the last 18 months. Additionally, the number of events coordinated within the community, and networking opportunities for business owners, is greater than ever. The chamber was able to hire an office assistant to support the thriving business.

Ensor has agreed to stay with the chamber throughout the recruitment and training of the new executive director. The position will be posted to the chamber's Web site immediately at www.nevada-mo.com and the chamber welcomes applications from any qualified persons.

"Gina is a wonderful asset to the chamber. We have been very fortunate to have her leadership through this time of growth," said Michael Brown, 2012 chamber board president. "We look forward to working with her in the coming months as the chamber plans its biggest event of the year, the "Dueling Pianos Gala and Pacesetter Awards Cere-mony," where we will unveil our 2013 Community Guide. With community support, steadfast office assistance and strong membership, we are planning a transition that will allow the incumbent a running start. I wish Gina all the success she deserves, and the happiness that comes from her time with her family."

The Chamber made great strides rebuilding over the last couple of years. Gina has done a terrific job and I wish her the very best going forward. She is leaving for all the right reasons. The Chamber board will have big shoes to fill!
