held April 13
The new executive director of the Cairo-Grady County Chamber of Commerce is now on the job and says she is looking forward to getting to know her new community.
Jennifer Jarvis started Thursday, and says it has been a very welcoming experience. “It is a very hospitable community and everyone has been extremely kind to me,” Jarvis says. “I’m excited about the future and I appreciate the trust and the value that the business owners in the community have in the chamber here.”
The chamber is hosting an opportunity for locals to meet Jarvis Tuesday afternoon at the chamber.
Jarvis says the event, Grady Off the Clock, is a revamping of the chamber’s former “Business After Hours,” and will be held 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
To prepare for the event, Jarvis, has been taking a deep dive into the chamber’s business. “I’ve been digging into the computers, getting familiar with the membership roster, and in the next few weeks you’ll see me in the community more,” she says.
Getting out and meeting chamber members is next on Jarvis’ to-do list.
She says, “It’s obvious that we have a strong network of businesses in the community. I’m very hopeful for a bright future and I look forward to meeting everyone.”
In the last week, Jarvis has already met with the chamber board of directors and ambassadors.
Jarvis comes to Cairo from the Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce where she worked as program services director since 2018. She has also worked as a ProjectSEARCH Job Coach for Colquitt County Schools and as a vocational specialist with Easter Seals of Southwest Georgia.
