Casper Area Chamber of Commerce Announces Resignation of Executive Director, Lori Becker

After 9 years with the Casper Area Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director, Lori Becker has resigned for personal reasons effective August 15, 2011.

In her tenure, Becker has focused on measures that have strengthened the organization and the community.  In reflection of past accomplishments, Becker cited, “many internal operational changes including a new dues structure, a new focus of purpose for the organization, new messaging, a streamlined staff, and increased non-dues revenue and sponsorships.  With the help of many volunteers and groups, it was also a great sense of accomplishment to have the optional one-cent tax pass at the margin it did last November.”

Becker has represented the Casper Area Chamber of Commerce as the President of the Wyoming Chamber of Commerce Executives, and on the Board of Directors for the Western Association of Chamber Executives.  She has worked with many community organizations and plans to continue volunteering within the community.

The Chamber Board has formed a search committee to replace Becker.
