Wertman Leaving Huntingburg Chamber Of Commerce



HUNTINGBURG (Local Sources) – The Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce is once again looking for an executive director as Elizabeth Wertman has announced her resignation from the position. Wertman was hired just this past April to replace long-time executive director Nick Stevens.

In a news release, Wertman said, “No one ever likes to give up on anything. I don’t, especially when I knew others had such high hopes for me and I wanted so much to succeed for them.”

“It is for my own personal reasons that I am leaving the chamber. I do hope that I made a good impact somewhere in working for the chamber.”

The 25-year old Wertman is a 2009 Graduate of Southridge High School.

She attended college at Herron of Art and Design on IUPUI campus and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts of Photography. Along with being the Executive Director, Wertman is also the Head Coach of the Southridge Middle School Girls Track and Field Team and is co-chair (with her twin sister) of the Chairman for the Huntingburg Herbstfest Puttin’ on the Hits Lip-sync Competition.

Wertman added that she planned on being involved in the community however she could in the future.

The board of directors also included a thank you to Wertman in the news release. “During her time with the Chamber, Elizabeth has advanced the chamber’s technology base, redesigning the website, creating a new format for our e-newsletter, as well as updating and pulling a new audience to our social media pages,” chamber board president Al Mihajlovits said in the announcement.

“Elizabeth also brought new ideas to our events. The City Wide Yard Sale had a new electronic map for yard sale shoppers to use to find their bargains. At the Farmer’s Market, she showed customers new recipes to cook with their homegrown veggies, thus creating Cooking with the Chamber.” Mihajlovits added that the executive committee will be meeting to decide on the next step in filling the executive director position.
