The Chamber’s Dynamic Duo is official!

Monday, Catherine Stinnett joined the Chamber staff as our Member Relations/Events Coordinator. Catherine and her family moved to Herington the first time in February of 2013. In June of 2014, they left Herington for Bakersfield, California to take care of her husband’s mother.  Fortunately for our lovely community, she and her family returned to Herington this year after the loss of her mother-in-law. Catherine graduated from Manhattan Christian College with a degree in Business and Ethics and has been in sales and management for the last fourteen years.  Catherine is most excited about getting out to meet all of the Chamber members and the community and being of service to the community she now calls home.

Catherine’s has a full house that includes her husband Darrell, three sons, a daughter, a sister, two grandchildren, a dog, and four cats. Catherine is also a member of the Herington Planning Board and will be joining the Herington Convention and Visitor’s Board.  She is also an active member of the First Baptist Church and has been an individual Chamber member since they returned to our area.

Catherine’s duties will entail coordinating with Chamber members to asses their needs as well as organizing Chamber events.

The position of Bookkeeper at the Chamber was offered to Wendy Jones.  Wendy has a strong background in the Chamber, serving as the Executive Director for 3 years from 2013 to 2016.  Her position will handle all financial duties and she will also bring her skills as a graphic designer and social media marketer to the office.

A trial schedule is as follows: the Chamber office will be open from 10 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday with Catherine working on Monday and Tuesday and Wendy on Thursday and Friday.  Both ladies will work on Wednesday with Catherine using that day to be out on the streets visiting members.
