The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce has announced a transition in responsibilities. Effective immediately, Claudia Scott will serve as Director, Member Engagement. Along with her member engagement role, Claudia will assume the responsibility for Off the Clock, Joint Business After Hours, Member Perks, and New Member Orientation programming. She will also serve in assisting the management of New Teacher Lunch, Teacher’s Fair, and Chamber Challenge Golf Scramble with Interim President & CEO, Ashley Wardlow.
“I am incredibly excited to work with small businesses and see how I can help tell their stories,” says Scott. “Providing support for this part of our community is a big passion of mine and I am grateful to have been entrusted with the responsibility. It really is an honor to work alongside this team.”
Beginning in 2023, Sherry Roslma, Vice President, Member Engagement and Events, will assume further programming for the Chamber.
“We take for granted the big impact that small businesses create for our community,” Rolsma states.
“For Bentonville specifically, entrepreneurial spirit in is embedded deep in our roots. Small businesses create an identity for us, a sense of place. Not only do we as locals get to relish in what they provide daily, visitors talk about the impact they had on them for years to come once they return to their home. When you shop local, it stays local. I’m looking forward to working more closely with our small businesses and managing our small business programming with Claudia’s help. There are great things on the horizon.”
