MILTON – The Central PA Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors selected its 2022 slate of officers at its reorganizational meeting Thursday morning, Jan. 13.
Rob Jones, a board member and volunteer with the Milton Historical Society, was elected chairman. Now serving as 1st vice chair is Skyler Herb, a sales and marketing representative with Skyworks Equipment Rental. Chenelle Thomas, director of operations with ClearView Asset Protection, is now 2nd vice chair. And, Lennea “Nea” Brown, business manager for Heritage Springs Memory Care, will serve as treasurer this year. The same four directors also make up the executive committee.
“I am so proud, and humbled, to be the chairman of the board for the Central PA Chamber in 2022,” said Jones, who was also reelected to a second three-year term by the membership. “I take the choice from my fellow board members as a vote of confidence in my leadership skills. I cannot wait for an awesome 2022 with this Chamber!”
“I would like to thank my peers for nominating and electing me as the vice chairman,” Herb said. “I’m excited to take on additional responsibilities with a chamber that has a strong, loyal and growing membership.
“Local businesses are expanding and new businesses are opting to break ground or replace vacant buildings in our area, which is a positive indication for our local economy. Exciting times are ahead in 2022 and for many years to come, which I look forward to participating in.”
Thomas, who was just elected to a new term after being appointed to an open seat in 2021, said, “I am looking forward to three years on the board with the Chamber. They do so much for businesses and the people within the business.
“I am a true believer of success is where preparation and opportunity meet. That’s what the Central PA Chamber is about!”
While the aforementioned are new to the officer role at the Central PA Chamber, Brown previously served as first vice chair and was asked to return in the treasurer capacity.
“I am honored to serve in the position of treasurer as well as a board member of the Central PA Chamber of Commerce,” she said. “I truly believe in our mission and am committed to doing my part to represent the membership and promote economic growth.”
Tea Jay Aikey, Central PA Chamber President & CEO, noted there was lots of interest in being a board officer this year.
“It is wonderful to see so many business and organization leaders want to step up to assist with the Central PA Chamber’s vision and mission,” she said. “Those who were elected are highly respected by their peers, and not only at the board level but by the membership at-large.
“I look forward to working with this executive team throughout 2022 in order to continue being trailblazers in our arena, and assisting our members in all their endeavors.”
