Albany Chamber to host CEO reception

ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a reception today to welcome new president/CEO Chris Hardy, according to chamber Director of Communications Rachelle Bitterman.

Bitterman said chamber members and staff will be in attendance to greet the former president and CEO of the Clemson (South Carolina) Chamber. Hardy was offered the Albany position following a nationwide search, Bitterman said.

“There are no speeches planned,” she added. “It’s basically an opportunity to stop by for some hors d’oeuvres, meet the new CEO and ask a few questions if you like.”
