Pam Powers-Smith has officially assumed the post of interim President and CEO of the Rome-Floyd Chamber. She is the successor to Jeanne Krueger, whose last day as the Chamber’s President and CEO was last Friday.
Powers-Smith, who previously served as Director of Business and Industry, once led the Chamber of Commerce over in Opelika, Alabama (near Auburn). Her prior work experience also includes stints as leader of that community’s Downtown Development Authority and Tourism Office.
The Rome-Floyd Chamber has been short-staffed as of late; as such, Powers-Smith intends to remain focused on the needs of her employees. Her goals as the interim President and CEO also include attending to the needs of member businesses.
Powers-Smith muses that the community owes a debt of gratitude to Krueger for helping it to navigate challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
Consumers are also urged by Powers-Smith to stay at home and shop Rome, Cave Spring, and Floyd County this holiday season.
The Chamber has planned a Ready, Set, Shop Small event for next Tuesday, November 23rd to prepare retailers for Small Business Saturday, which is set for Saturday, November 27th, according to Powers-Smith.
