Kremmling chamber director resigns from position
After three years on the job as executive director of the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce, Shelly McManus is stepping down from her leadership position.
McManus formally submitted her resignation to the Kremming Chamber Board of Directors in early March and, according to Board Chair Dawna Heller, McManus has been working with the chamber during the transition period.
“(Shelly) is working with us through the end of March and will be working with us on an as needed basis for training,” Heller said during a phone interview Wednesday morning.
McManus was on vactation this week and was unavailable for comment. According to Heller McManus informed the board her decision to step away as chamber director was based in large part upon her desire to obtain a seasonal job that would allow her greater flexibility to travel. Heller said McManus’ tenure with the Kremmling Chamber has been almost three years exactly.
The Kremmling Chamber plans to hire a replacement director within the next 30 days.
“We already have quite a bit of interest and a lot of really good applicants,” Heller said. “The board has come up with several different options; either keeping an executive director or potentially opening it up to two different positions. We are playing that by ear.”
Heller said the Chamber Board has received four formal applications so far and added, “I would say they are all highly qualified”.
Heller highlighted the Chamber’s job application for the new director position is listed on the chamber’s website, on the home page. The announcement notes the chamber is looking forward to hearing about McManus’s “off-season travels” and adds the chamber is “so happy she will be across the street to lend her invaluable knowledge and sup port in our future endeavors.”
The website announcement of the new open position states the board is “considering restricting some of the job duties based on applications received” and directs prospective applications to contact Kremmling Chamber Assistant Director Andrea Buller or Board Chair Heller for any questions about the application process.
