24 New beginnings After 8.5 years at the Chamber, and 15+ years in the Bay Area, my family has decided to move to France for a year at least. I am very excited about this decision. I have lived the Chamber for these past years, met amazing people, went through ups and downs, brought it, thanks to your amazing support, to where it is now and it is with deep sadness that I will leave my position at the end of the summer. I though will still be working part time for the Chamber from France, helping with the transition and trade services to French companies. I believe the Board and Officers will make the perfect choice in choosing my replacement and look forward keeping in touch with many of you.
