The St. James Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors announced a new Executive Director for the Chamber on Friday. Former St. James Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lori Nusbaum tendered her resignation in recent weeks in order to pursue other opportunities, and the search for her replacement has been underway since the time. Nusbaum’s last day with the St. James Chamber was Friday, and the Chamber Board then announced that the new Executive Director will be Tabitha Johnson. The Board says that Johnson grew up in a small town with small town values, expanded her horizons in the metropolitan area, and married a St. James native. She begins her duties as chamber executive director on Monday.
