Chamber Executive Director Julie Miller has given the chamber 20 years of service, and there is no way to properly express our enormous gratitude for her hard work, dedication and creativity. Under Julie's leadership, Chamber membership is strong, The Cranberry Festival has become a destination weekend for thousands of tourists and locals alike every September and our website has become a leader in the industry, winning multiple awards and accolades, and much, much more. She has represented the best interests of Bandon businesses on the local, state, national and worldwide level. We are very sad to lose her, but I know her time will be well spent with her family and active teenage daughter, and I know she will continue to contribute to the Bandon community for many years to come.
The Chamber board of directors is solidifying an (extensive) job description to search for the best fit to fill her position in the very near future, but we know that she leaves behind big shoes to fill and it will not be a quick search. The entire board is dedicated to stepping up and making sure that the transition is a smooth one for everyone.
