Dear Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce Members,

I am truly honored to be serving as the 2020 Chairperson of the Board of Directors’.  I am hopeful to make great contributions this year, keeping with the history of the outstanding leadership throughout the Chamber’s existence.  I will strive to emulate the integrity, vision, and leadership that has been demonstrated by our recent past Chair, Rick Baxter, and the many others before him.

We have a tremendously talented, experienced and engaged Board of Directors, along with Mark Locke, our President and our new Chamber Administrative Assistant, Taralyn Pete.  We all share the vision and desire to improve this great community where we work, live, and raise our families.   Our Chamber is here for you.  We hope you find value in your membership and we encourage you to take advantage of the many networking opportunities taking place this year!  Please consider attending our Business After Hours events, the Annual Meeting, new business ribbon-cutting events, the Jim Fish Memorial Golf Outing, special educational workshops, and the Business Awards Luncheon.   We are always open to new ideas and welcome your feedback.

I encourage companies and business leaders to engage with us to experience the value that the Chamber has to offer you and your business. You can make the most of your membership by volunteering, serving on a committee, or connecting with the Chamber staff.  The Chamber is here to educate, communicate, and advocate on behalf of the interests of businesses.  As partners, we will accomplish great success and thrive to strengthen our community!

I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your business to continue growing the greater Alliance area!


Lisa Gentile, 2020 Chairperson
