The Chamber Board of Directors regretfully accepted the resignation of Michael Wynn Song as Chair at their meeting on April 26. Michael was elected to the position in December of 2017, but his plans to spend the next few years in Oxnard changed and he moved his home and family to Texas.
Stacy Miller of Stacy Miller Public Affairs was elected to fill the Chair of the Board vacancy. Ms. Miller previously served as Chair-Elect of the Oxnard Chamber. Although Stacy has only been a full-time Oxnard resident for a few years, she has been visiting Oxnard since she was a little girl. Her family liked to vacation on our coast. Ms. Miller was elected to the Chamber Board of Directors in 2016 for a term beginning in January 2017.
With a vacancy in the Chair-Elect position, Celina Zacarias of California State University Channel Islands volunteered to fill it. Celina is no stranger to chambers of commerce. She has served on numerous chamber boards and was recently the Chair of the Simi Valley Chamber.
We thank both women for stepping forward to guide the Oxnard Chamber through the rest of 2018, and we wish Michael Wynn Song the best in his new home.
