A New Executive Director is Selected
By John Latenser, Board President
I am very pleased to report that by a unanimous vote, the Board approved Melissa Clark as the new permanent Executive Director for our association. As most of you know, Melissa has served as interim director the past several months.
We are very fortunate to have Melissa as our permanent Executive Director. She has been a long time member of FIA, has served several terms on the board, and has volunteered on various committees and many working groups over the years. There isn't much about FIA that Melissa hasn't seen, done or participated in.
She also knows many of the Fairfax businesses and their employees since she has operated her own business (CE Distribution) here in Fairfax for some time.
Much of the director's job involves membership. So when you hear from Melissa – and you will - about joining, or renewing your membership please give her a few extra minutes.
You can contact Melissa or any Board member (we're listed on last page of this newsletter each month) at any time with comments, questions, or suggestions about to improve the business environment here in Fairfax.
Let's all wish Melissa well as she takes on the job as the unofficial 'mayor of Fairfax'.
