The Maricopa Chamber of Commerce Board announced it will hold a meeting this week “in an open conversation on the future growth and projects for the Chamber.”

A portion of that growth will be within the Chamber’s personnel, specifically attributed to its future director.

The Chamber recently advertised the full-time position online and set no deadline for submissions.

The breakfast mixer will give members the opportunity to lend their voice in the hiring process and other Chamber matters.

“I’m hoping we have a good amount of people there and we can discuss or address anybody’s concerns,” said Board Chairman Chris Cahall.

Cahall said the director’s salary range still needs to be decided but could be between $30,000-$40,000.

Former Chamber Director Terri Crain resigned last month to accept a position elsewhere. However, Crain is working part-time at the Chamber on a volunteer basis, Cahall said.

The meeting for Chamber members May 10 will be at Elements Event Center at 7 a.m.

“The Board (is) going to be in the room and we’re going to tell everyone that these are the things that the Board has been working on, trying to figure out and what we need to do,” Cahall said. “It’s not the Board’s Chamber, it’s not the City of Maricopa’s Chamber, it’s the memberships’ (Chamber).”
