as New Director
The Middlebury Chamber of Commerce welcomed Sharon (Sheri) Howland as the new executive director. She will take over the duties as executive director, overseeing all membership events, Vibrant Communities initiatives, and other various chamber functions.
Howland joins the chamber with more than 20 years of experience in public service, most recently as superintendent of the Goshen Parks and Recreation Department, where she has worked since 2001. She was very instrumental in the creation of Fidler Pond Park as well as other projects around the Goshen area.
She has also been a part of numerous community groups and events, volunteering her time and talents whenever she can, including for Vibrant Communities Elkhart County, Elkhart County Community Center, Pumpkinvine Advisory Committee, Goshen First Fridays and more.
The Middlebury Chamber Board of Directors are excited about the strong leadership and visions that Howland will bring to the executive director position. She will start her duties with the chamber on December 5.
