HEYBURN — The Mini-Cassia Chamber of Commerce will soon be looking for a new president and CEO to lead the chamber.

Kyla Sawyer, former president and CEO of the organization, turned in her resignation last week.

“We appreciate the work she did and wish her well on her new endeavors moving forward,” said Chris Seibold, Mini-Cassia Chamber of Commerce executive board chairman.

The board is fine tuning the job description and will be posting the listing it within the next couple of weeks.

“We will continue on with the businesses of the chamber, which is to promote business and tourism in Mini-Cassia,” Seibold said. “We really have a fantastic community.”

Sawyer was hired by the chamber in June 2016. Her last day was Feb. 23. She replaced Kae Cameron, who was hired in 2008. In the February chamber newsletter the board wrote that Sawyer worked tirelessly to advance the mission and goals of the chamber and its member businesses and she was uniquely qualified to update the chamber’s visual identify and marketing projects.

The letter said the board will be supporting chamber staff through the transition.

Amy Christopherson, past chairman of the executive board, said she is excited to see who applies for the position.

“Our member businesses and industries deserve and expect strong advocacy from this organization and Kyla and her team did a great job of identifying ways to move the chamber of commerce forward in this competitive workplace climate we call home,” Christopherson wrote in an email.
