Our President Annie McCauley
Each of our members play an essential role in the fabric of our community.
It is a great honor to serve as your Chamber President for 2023 alongside a team of dedicated Board of Directors, and our tireless Executive Director, Mike McKenna. Like many who now reside in the Wood River Valley, our family was a frequent visitor to the valley for over 40 years. Four years ago we moved to Hailey to make it our home base, and very soon after I jumped in to serve on the Chamber Board to serve my new community in a meaningful way.
The Chamber team is committed to supporting the health and vitality of every Chamber member in the Wood River Valley from Bellevue, Hailey, Ketchum, and Sun Valley. We know each member plays an essential role in the fabric of our community. Their pride and passion inspires us to provide programs and services to foster the success and sparkle of the valley’s business community while preserving all the special qualities of our small-town America feel.
In the year ahead, you’ll find your favorite Chamber-sponsored community events like the popular 4th of July parade down Hailey’s Main Street, the Turkey Trot family fun run on Thanksgiving morning, and the Chili Cook-Off to name a few. Alongside these popular events we’ll celebrate new business openings with ribbon cuttings, offer business after-hours networking opportunities, and continue to manage the Welcome Center in Hailey, publishing our award-winning Discover the Wood River Valley Guide which is distributed locally and around the State of Idaho, and advocating for Wood River Valley businesses with local, county and state government officials. We have a full plate and a small staff, but it is all well worth the effort for a community as special as ours.
Whether you are a Chamber member or not you are invited to visit the Chamber website (valleychamber.org) to learn about all the goings on in our special part of the world!
