“The Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is so excited to promote Christina to the very important role of executive director. Our city is growing and evolving, and we need to maintain the great momentum we’ve achieved to develop an even more meaningful, future-focused chamber. We’ve embraced the opportunity that came with staff changes and the pandemic with open arms and are taking a new look at everything we do − all in the name of delivering the most value possible to chamber members and business. Christina’s background is ideally suited to lead us through this rediscovery while embracing the important mission of the chamber to promote, connect and advocate for member organizations and the community,” stated Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce Board Chair and Bank of Sun Prairie SVP Joe Schuch. He continues, “The board selected Christina because she has the passion, drive and talent to take us to the next level of success. She’s also been instrumental in serving members individually and via special interest groups throughout the pandemic both in person and via video conferencing. Our intentional member connection and engagement has never been better. Christina is also serving as staff lead for the 2021 Sun Prairie Sweet Corn Festival.”
