Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce installs 2012 board

A familiar group of volunteers will serve as the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce’s 2012 board of directors.

Chamber CEO Peter Candela recently asked his 2011 board of directors whether they would serve for another year, and all agreed to do so to keep “the momentum going,” he said.

The board has had a retreat during a recent weekend to set goals and decide whether any changes to events may happen this year.

The board members include: Roger Wightman, Rick Turton, Ross Currie, Joseph M. Scott, Mike Spangler, Robert ‘Sonny’ Higginbotham, J.G. King, Tony Wells, Marc Lebed, Paul Jones, Ash Mehta, Narlene Carter-Keenan, Carla Soares and Chris Ohara (the only new board member).

The chamber also named Lebed its director of the year, and Arlene Gonzales-Gee as its ambassador of the year during its annual installation and awards dinner in January.
