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.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Tsipras dismisses Europe's warnings to Greece on vote
    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras rejected European warnings that Greeks will be deciding on their future in the euro zone in a referendum on Sunday, saying negotiations would continue for a better deal with international creditors after the vote. In a televised address on Friday, Tsipras said a report by the International Monetary Fund which arguing that Greece's massive public debt could not be sustained without significant writedowns vindicated his advice to reject the lenders' terms. "On Sunday what is at stake is not Greece's membership of Europe, what is at stake is whether blackmail will lead us to accept the continuation of a policy which the lenders themselves recognize is a dead end," he said.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
