The interim tag is being lifted from Wendy Parsons’ title as general manager of the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce.

Parsons first assumed leadership duties when Sally McDonald resigned from the chamber about two months ago.

“One thing I’m working on very hard is a customer service workshop. That will be in September,” explains Parsons. “I really hope we can get our members out, as well as the general public, because I think it’s really important to have a great customer service front in our community.” The GM says getting local businesses to network is also going to be a key for success going forward.

Parsons had also worked as Office Support Coordinator at the chamber for the last decade. That position is expected to be filled this fall, as a student will take over for the summer.
