Tammy Whitty-Brown to Step Down As Schroon Chamber Executive

Tammy Whitty-Brown to Step Down As Schroon Chamber Executive

Tammy Whitty-Brown, the Executive Director of Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, is leaving office after three years due to health concerns.

Tammy was the spark that lit a fire at the Chamber, after the executive role went unfilled after the resignation of Patrick Siler.

Tammy's goal was to grow the Chamber Membership, promote the towns of Schroon, Severance and Paradox, bring new business and events to the area, and grow the lifeblood of the town: tourism.

We wish Tammy an amazing second act, as she takes on the marketing and social media efforts of Blue Ridge Electrical Contracting Incorporated, and builds her own business as an Independent Avon Representative and Team Leader for the North Country.
