Mission of the Colville Chamber of Commerce:  Provide leadership to stimulate, promote and support economic vitality, tourism, communication, education and community pride in the greater Colville, Washington area.



Ladies and Gentlemen:


Good Morning:

I am retiring and will not be working for the Chamber as of March 31st.  Karen Learn will assume the Office Manager position.  She has been the assistant manager for the last 3 years, so the transition is going smoothly.  I wish her the best in her new role!  Judi Weaver has been hired as the assistant manager.  She has been a board member for several years, and will fit in well at the Chamber office.  It has been a pleasure working for the Chamber for over 10 years and I will miss being part of this organization.


Debbie Garringer
