The Grants Pass & Josephine County Chamber of Commerce will be searching for a new leader after the current CEO announced plans to depart the organization in March.

In a recent press release, Chamber of Commerce President Josie Malloy said she will be leaving Grants Pass next month as she and her family will be moving to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to be closer to loved ones.

Malloy leaves the Chamber in a strong position, financially stable, with talented staff members and an effective board of directors to ensure the continuation of the positive work the organization does for the local business community.

Malloy has initiated effective collaboration with partners and brought together diverse voices to drive positive change in the community. Under her leadership, the Chamber created two new youth programs: the Young Professionals Network and Lemonade Day. Both are designed to create future community leaders and to engage a younger audience.

Josie said it was a hard decision to leave and that she appreciates the opportunity to serve as President and CEO of the Chamber. She called the job "a very rewarding experience" and added that "Grants Pass is an amazing community that I will always cherish."

The Chamber Board of Directors soon will be conducting a search for Malloy's successor. During the transition period, it is the Board's priority to find the best individual to lead while maintaining a stable and effective organization.
