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.

  • Dollar retreats after its best day in two years
    A string of reversals from sharp moves the previous day marked global financial market trading on Wednesday, with stocks and oil gaining ground and the U.S. dollar falling after its biggest rally in two years. Brent crude and WTI oil futures were up 1 percent, while the major European stock markets gained as much as 0.5 percent and U.S. futures pointed to a higher open on Wall Street following Tuesday's 1 percent slide, its biggest fall in three weeks. There are no major U.S. or European economic data due on Wednesday, leaving traders to ruminate on the timing of the first U.S. interest rate hike and the latest twists in the Greek debt talks saga.
  • Citi keeps top spot in FX trading as European banks slump: poll
    European banks Deutsche Bank, Barclays and UBS have seen their market share in foreign exchange trading slump in the past year, as U.S. banks led by Citigroup (C.N) grabbed business, according to widely watched industry rankings. Citigroup kept its top spot as the leading foreign exchange trading bank with a market share of 16.1 percent, up from 16 percent a year ago, according to the Euromoney FX Survey 2015. Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) and Barclays (BARC.L) remained in second and third spots, but their market shares fell to 14.5 percent from 15.7 percent and to 8.1 percent from 10.9 percent, respectively.
  • Bernanke sees no risk of hard landing in China, bullish on US economy
    Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that China's economic slowdown should not worry markets as there was no risk of a hard landing, and emphasized that a move to raise U.S. rates should be viewed as a positive sign for the world's largest economy. Bernanke, who participated in an open interview at a private-sector forum in Seoul on Wednesday, said the expected U.S. rate hike would be "anticlimactic" when it happens and that there would only be minor negative impact on South Korea. A Fed rate hike, expected by markets before the end of this year, would be something to cheer about, said Bernanke, who now works at the Brookings Institution and advises bond giant Pimco and hedge fund Citadel.
