SoVaNow.com / January 20, 2014
The Halifax County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Mitzi Riddle will be joining the Chamber as vice president of Business and Program Development effective Tuesday, Jan. 21.

Riddle worked for the Chamber from 2000 to 2011. Most recently, she worked for Averett University as director of special events.

She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business administration from Averett University. She is a 2005 graduate of the US Chamber’s four-year Institute for Organization Management program through which she earned the chamber industry’s IOM designation.

“I am very excited to return to the Chamber,” Riddle stated. “I am passionate about what the Chamber does for businesses and the community. I look forward to working with the Chamber’s board and volunteers to grow the organization and serve the membership,” she continued. Riddle’s major responsibilities will include marketing, membership, and programming.

“The Chamber is very fortunate to attract someone with Mitzi’s credentials and experience. Having worked at the Chamber for eleven years, she brings a strong background in organization and volunteer management. Add to that her education and experience at Averett, the Chamber is going to benefit tremendously. She’s coming back at a good time because March is the end of our fiscal year. Planning for 2014-15 is beginning.’ stated Chamber President, Nancy Pool.
