At its December 6 meeting, the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors elected the 2019 Officers. Most of the faces will be quite familiar, as there wasn't much change from the later part of 2018.
Members may recall we had changes in officers mid-year in 2018 due to the relocation of the Board chair. Chair-Elect Stacy Miller stepped up to fill the vacancy at the end of April, and has agreed to stay in that position through 2019. Stacy is the principal of Stacy Miller Public Affairs.
Serving as Chair-Elect in 2019 is Celina Zacarias. Celina is the Senior Director of Community and Government Relations at California State University Channel Islands. Celina is very active with a number of other chambers of commerce, so we feel very lucky to have her as Chair-Elect.
Amy Fonzo has agreed to serve another year as the Chamber's Immediate Past Chair. Amy is the Manager of External Relations for California Resources Corporation, the largest producer of oil and gas in California.
Andrew Kiefer will remain in his position as Vice Chair / Treasurer, where he has served for the past two years. Andrew is the Managing Director for CBIZ MHM, LLC in Oxnard. His firm provides accounting and other services to help businesses grow.
New to the slate of Officers in 2019 is Craig Classen. Craig is Regional Vice President for Jani Tek Cleaning Solutions. Craig is active on the Chamber Ambassadors Committee and a graduate of the Oxnard Leadership program.
The Officers of the Oxnard Chamber make up its Executive Committee.
