After a fifteen year tenure, Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Boyd Palmer is retiring.
Palmer called his time at the chamber it a wonderful, rewarding experience.
He says he accomplished his three goals while working with the city of Ottawa over the years.
First, was to the have the city buy land to make it easier to sell to developers. Second, was to make it easier for businesses to get the permits they needed. And third, was to form and work with an economic development task force.
The chamber board is looking for Palmer’s replacement.
