Holson announces resignation from chamber

After three years with the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, Carrie Holson will be resigning from her position as executive director. Her last day was Friday, Oct. 8.

Holson sent an email to chamber members last Thursday announcing her resignation, stating that she had been offered a job position in Albany, where she currently lives.

“It has been a pleasure serving the chamber and Breckenridge businesses, and I have appreciated the support shown by so many over the past three years,” Holson wrote in the email.

The chamber announced Holson as the new executive director in October 2018. She was working part-time for the city of Albany as a grant-writer and emergency management coordinator before accepting the executive director position.

Holson said she would be moving from her position in Breckenridge to a new job, unaffiliated with the chamber, in Albany.

“(I) am looking forward to the new adventure, and to being closer to home each day,” Holson also wrote in the email.

The chamber’s board of directors is currently awaiting a proposal from the Breckenridge Economic Development Corporation which, according to Colton Buckley, BEDC Executive Director, would “utilize shared staffing, cost-saving measures, and team synergy on behalf of both entities.”

The proposal was discussed at the board’s September meeting.
