Executive Director’s Message


Our Chamber’s core values stem from an appreciation and support for what small business contributes to society through jobs, financial donations and volunteerism.  In Ashland, we value cultural diversity, an educated citizenry, clean environment, healthy business sector, and a family-friendly small town.  In addition to our numerous programs to support business, we create and manage all the major community events including the Fourth of July Celebration, Children’s Halloween Festival, and the Holiday Festival of Light Celebration.

The services we offer our visitors, residents and businesses underscore these values and work to strengthen our collaborative partnerships creating a sustainable community.  Active engagement in the community, improving the economic health, vitality and livability of Ashland is at the cornerstone of the Chamber’s programs and makes it such a joy to be involved.

Over the years, it has been such a pleasure to work with such dedicated, caring and creative individuals working tirelessly year-round to improve and enhance our community.  I am grateful to be a part of it and humbled by those who give of their time and resources for the betterment of society enhancing our quality of life.​
