Community Invited to Reception for Retiring Chamber Director, Diane Bryant,
and New Director, Hope Sartain
The Tullahoma Board of Mayor and Aldermen invites the community to a reception for outgoing Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) Executive Director, Diane Bryant and incoming Executive Director, Hope Sartain. The reception begins at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, January 23, 2017 prior to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting at City Hall.
The Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce will say goodbye to Diane Bryant, as she steps down after 12 years at the helm.
“Diane was very involved in the community, and she did a great job,” said Mayor Lane Curlee. “I will miss working with her and want to express my appreciation for her dedication and passion she has shown for Tullahoma. We are grateful to Diane and wish her the best in retirement. I look forward to working with Hope.”
Taking over the Chamber of Commerce is Hope Sartain. For the last eight years, Sartain has risen through the ranks of the chamber while also winning chamber-sponsored awards. In 2016, Sartain was recognized by the chamber for her volunteer contributions to the community as one of four “Women Impacting the Community” and as one of five “MVP Rising Star” emerging leaders.
“I know from experience that assuming the reins of a chamber operation can be a daunting challenge,” said Executive Director of the Tullahoma Area Economic Development Corporation (TAEDC) C. Thomas Robinson. “We’re looking forward to working with Ms. Sartain and the many projects where we can assist each other for the betterment of the Community.”
