r What’s in a name? Everything! The Payson Santaquin Area Chamber of Commerce made a change in their name to show a change in focus.
“When our chambers first came together we were the Payson & Santaquin Area Chamber of Commerce,” said chamber Past President and board member, Lorene Moore. “The & was there because we were bringing together two communities. It’s time to take it out and recognize that we really are one business community serving both towns.”
It’s a small change that the chamber hopes will say a lot about how important it is for businesses in both towns to work together to create success for everyone.
With the new name comes a new logo.
“We wanted a fresh new logo that represents our fresh focus,” current President, Jade Walker, noted. “We are looking closely at everything we do to see how we can make our events, our communications and our community efforts more beneficial to all of our members.”
The ribbon cutting for their new office on Main St. in Payson was a great opportunity for the chamber to introduce these changes, and their new Executive Director, Andra Cefalo, to their members and the public.
“I’m excited to be working with the chamber,” said Cefalo. “Our chamber has so much to offer our members. I am really looking forward to reaching out to businesses and helping them see what is here for them.”
Along with their offices, the chamber’s new home has a conference room that will be available to members whenever they need more space than they may have at their own business.
The chamber invites you to stop by their new office at 22 South Main St. in Payson and see how you can become a part of the chamber.
