Her background in managing data and measuring results will help position the organization for continued success. Her first day at the Chamber was Jan. 2.
Alison, a graduate of Kansas State University, previously worked as the Events Coordinator for JOMA Bowling Company where she oversaw a wide range of events for groups of 15 to 1,000 attendees.
