The new executive director of Cranbrook’s Chamber of Commerce looks forward to getting to know her new city.
Kristin Parsons was welcomed to the community at Wednesday’s chamber luncheon.
She was the guest speaker alongside the new executive director of Cranbrook Tourism, Kristy Jahn-Smith.
Parsons says she was flattered by the warm welcome.
“To have 140 people in a room for lunch to hear from us, it was a very warm welcome,” says Parson. “I enjoyed the questions, and I look forward to answering those even more elaborately with our membership one on one.”
She says her first goal as director is to meet chamber members and learn what they are hoping to get out of their membership.
Another goal is to address the rising number of young entrepreneurs and business owners joining the chamber.
Parsons says that chambers are changing and she wants to help members adjust.
