KREMMLING/GRAND LAKE ­— The chambers of commerce in both Kremmling and Grand Lake are looking for new executive directors this month.

Kremmling Chamber executive director Shannon Clark announced her resignation in a press release on Thursday, Nov. 7. She said her decision was a financial one, and she’ll be taking a job with Grand County Social Services. Her last day is Friday, Nov. 15.

“I really enjoyed working here, I learned a tremendous amount,” Clark said. “I’m sad to go, but I’m excited for the next step.”

During her two years at the chamber, Clark worked to increase marketing for businesses and helped develop a user-friendly and appealing website that will help attract visitors to the area. She expects it to officially launch sometime in January. The Kremmling Chamber will be accepting applications for the executive director position until Nov. 21.

Grand Lake’s chamber executive director, Kacey Beres, resigned suddenly on Saturday, Nov. 8. She had held the position since March.

“She was great with events like the Buffalo Barbeque,” said Samantha Miller, the chamber’s interim executive director. “We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

The Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce will accept application for the executive director position until Nov. 27.
