Chamber Director resigns
The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Krista Levee has announced she will be leaving the position she has held for the past four years to pursue a new job opportunity with the Elizabethtown Heritage Council, beginning November 1.
Chamber Board President Teleana Davis accepted Levee’s resignation on October 18, 2016.
“It is with a heavy heart that The LaRue County Chamber Board of Directors announces the resignation of our LaRue County Chamber Director, Krista Levee. Krista is resigning from her position as Executive Director to seek a new career opportunity effective Friday, October 28, 2016,” Davis stated. “Krista has done a wonderful job representing our business community over the last 4 years. She has become a vital member of our community and will be missed by many. On behalf of the Board of Directors, we want to thank Krista for her time and the dedication that she has committed to our organization and this community. Please join me in wishing Krista the best in her new career. She will truly be missed”.
Levee responded saying, “In the last 4 years, it has been my privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce. For that reason, it is bittersweet to announce my departure. I have accepted an offer to serve as the Executive Director of the Elizabethtown Heritage Council.”
Levee went on to say it has been rewarding to be a part of the exciting growth in the chamber membership and the continued successful growth in events as the Chamber endeavored to bring businesses and the community together for networking and family fun opportunities.
“I have no doubt the momentum will continue under the leadership of Chamber President, Teleana Davis and the board of directors as they maneuver through this transitional time,” Levee said.
The Chamber executive committee met this week and is working on a contingency plan to keep the Chamber office open to the public while the board begins the process of replacing Levee’s position.
All Chamber events are on schedule and will continue as planned including Monday night’s costume contest, beginning at 5:30 p.m., followed by Trick or Treat on the Square in downtown Hodgenville.
