The president and CEO of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced she will step down from the position after more than four years. Elizabeth Cromwell’s last day on the job will be February 17.
“Personally and professionally, the time is right for me to take on some new challenges and adventures,” Cromwell is quoted in a press release. “I have learned a lot during my time here and am grateful to the board, the Chamber staff, our many volunteers, our Chamber members, and for all of my experiences here.”
Cromwell will be moving to Massachusetts to assist with the opening of an autism center on Martha’s Vineyard.
In her place will step Andrea Copeland as interim president while a search is conducted for a replacement. Copeland is the Chamber’s Director of Committee Engagement and has worked for the Chamber since 2007 when she began as a volunteer. She became Director of Member Education Services in 2012.
