January 28--  Membership growth and more programs to benefit members are the goals of the new chairman of the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce.

Biram Chapman took over the reins at the chamber's annual meeting.  "We'd like to grow the membership and make the membership investment work well for the community to bring in more jobs, and bring more programs that will benefit chamber members," he said.

Outgoing chairman Brian Frost presented this year's chairman's award to Kathy Bradford of The Advance and said, in spite of the economy, 2009 was a good year for the chamber.  "I think it was a great year.  I've been involved in the chamber for 12 years and it was really gratifying to see from where we were to where we came with our finances.  That's all attributable to the community we live in," Frost said.

The new chairman hopes the chamber can continue to make a difference in the community this year and said, "There are just many people in this community who need our help.  We're just blessed because even during this economic downturn we've done a great job with economic development and everybody has pulled together.  Now if we can make a difference in one person's life, then they can pass that along, too."

Members of the chamber's executive board are Alan Thigpen, Mike Gay, Adam Moore, Susan Taylor and Steven Dingler.  Directors include Kim Corley, Sandy Dixon, Tres Herin, Howard Hill, Howard Holman, Susan Kight, Andy Kimbell, Chris Phillips, Nathan Pittman, Warren Sowell, Raymond Turner and Heidi Zubeck.

The chamber has 500 members, according to president Bill Mitchell.
