The person who led the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce for fifteen years is retiring.
Executive Director Boyd Palmer’s last day is December 31.
His advice for the chamber and city moving forward?
Palmer served in the Army and a long career or economic development and marketing before becoming executive director at the chamber.
Something about it just kept him interested over the years.
He says one of his proudest accomplishments with the chamber was his role in the creation of an economic development task force.
Palmer says he’ll be spending his newfound free time traveling.
