Steele named president of Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce

The Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce announces the appointment of Arlis A. Steele as its president and CEO. She replaces Les Cohen, who retired from the chamber in June after 20 years in the position.

Steele has been active in leadership and management for two C]chambers of commerce as well as several governmental entities in California.

Most recently, she served as the executive director of the Dunsmuir Chamber of Commerce in Siskiyou County, Calif., where she successfully led a chamber turn-around by creating innovative new member services and fostering a new spirit of collaboration among business, government, and the community at large.

Her work experience includes effective leadership as the Youth/Senior Service director of the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians and the director of the Coyote Valley Tribal EPA.

Steele’s community service background is extensive. She has served as an active board member for the Art Center Ukiah, Hopland Economic Development Corporation, Ukiah Community Center, and the Collier Interpretive Information Center.

“Our Selection Committee diligently worked for four months on an extensive national search to find the best candidate to be our next CEO/president,” said Chamber Board Chair Jerry Law. “Arlis has a proven Chamber of Commerce track record plus a very strong commitment to the community. We are excited and proud to have her lead the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce”.

For more information contact the Chamber at 541-469-3181.
