Members of the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors posed for a picture at the chamber's annual Christmas dinner this past December. Included are new members Tom Grant, second from left, and Rita Trenti, far right. Also pictured, from left: Sue Dove, Susan Greenfield-Murphy, Sandi Mulconry, Alain Castel, Anne Bishop, Pam Schoener, Sarah Wiles, Joe Panzarella, Elaine Slater Kogler, Rita Drake and Tracie Barnes.
continued This is Trenti’s first time on the Skaneateles chamber of commerce board. She also serves on the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors Council and the Cayuga County Tourism Board.
“I’m very happy to be on the Skaneateles Chamber board; it’s a great opportunity,” Trenti said. “One of my goals is to make sure our members are fully served, and for new businesses to know the value of the Chamber and its services, and to help them promote their events and be successful.”
Sue Dove, chamber of commerce executive director, said the board is excited to have Grant and Trenti on its team.
“Tom’s extensive marketing experience is a tremendous asset to the chamber. His easygoing personality and willingness to take a leadership role in the chamber as vice president is greatly appreciated. Welcome back Tom!” Dove said.
“Rita Trenti is a brand new board member for the Skaneateles Chamber, but is very familiar with Chamber activities as she worked for the Chamber in 2009. Rita will be a great help in making sure we are representing our Auburn area businesses effectively. We are so pleased to have Rita back as an integral part of the Chamber team,” Dove said.
The next monthly meeting of the Chamber membership, and anyone interested in becoming a Chamber member, is at noon on Thursday, Feb. 9, at Stella Maris Retreat Center. Call the Chamber to RSVP: 685-0552.
