West Seattle holidays: Chamber celebrates, & says goodbye

West Seattle’s first major holiday party of the month rocked the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) in Morgan Junction on Thursday night: The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce gathered not only to celebrate the year’s achievements – and to vie for raffle prizes while enjoying music by Matt the Hoopla – but also to celebrate the woman who’s been at the helm for eight years:

President/CEO Patti Mullen, photographed with Chamber board chair Dave Montoure, is leaving to become President/CEO of the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce, as announced last month. Montoure says he plans to stay on as chair, so the West Seattle Chamber will have some leadership continuity in the new year; he and the transition team have several meetings ahead for the process of finding a new CEO. Also ahead for the Chamber in 2012: The Westside Awards breakfast is set for April 18th, and nominations already are being accepted (deadline: January 31st). P.S. Businesses/entrepreneurs interested in joining the Chamber can find membership info here.

    Patti has been a great asset to our West Seattle community for the last 8 years. She has worked tirelessly on many important issues that impact all of us. From traffic and transportation issues to bringing more business to West Seattle to working on making Alki a destination and the list goes on and on. West Seattle’s loss is Federal Way’s gain. Much success and happiness in the coming years to you Patti. Thanks for all that you have done for us. The only good thing about this is that she will still live in West Seattle and be spending Federal Way dollars here.

    Spot on, Pete. I have truly appreciated Patti’s willingness to do whatever it takes to sustain the health of the Chamber in these economically trying times.

    The peninsula’s business community will miss her greatly!

Sorry, comment time is over.
