There's been a change in leadership at the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce.
C-E-O Patty Hornbuckle has announced her retirement after 9 years at the helm of the town's gateway to the community.
In a board meeting on Wednesday, Linda Allen, who has been the Chamber's executive assistant for some 14 years, was named the new Chamber Executive Director.
Hornbuckle led the Chamber thru significant growth in membership, in revenue from fund-raising events, and in the continued improvements in the Chamber's signature event, Chillifest. The Chamber Board accepted her resignation with deep regret.
Allen says she's excited about continuing to serve the town she loves and grew up in, and with the support of the board and the community, she will continue to make Taylorville "A Great Place to Live."
The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce is the gateway to the community, providing information to hundreds of callers each month, as well as assisting existing and new businesses in the Taylorville area. More information on the Chamber can be found at taylorvillechamber-dot-com.
