From the President - Jim Russell
Looking Forward to a New Era for the Chamber
The Dundalk Chamber is changing with the communities it serves. While everyone is thinking about
the possibilities of Sparrows Point, Amazon, and the commercial, retail and housing development that appears to be everywhere these days, your Chamber is also looking to the future as we say farewell to a valued
staff member and a truly exceptional individual – Executive Director Dotty Cristy.
Dotty has been the mainstay of the Chamber for years, combining her insights about the area and its people with the extremely valuable expertise she brings in running a small organization built on service. Quite frankly, without Dotty, the Dundalk Chamber would have suffered greatly and might not have survived.
That’s why the Board of Directors agreed that Dotty completely deserved being selected for the President’s Award. There might be no one more integral to the success of this organization.
But, Dotty will step down at the end of this year, and in doing so is gracious enough to foster the efforts of new Executive Director Cathy Dailey-Hurley, who knows she has a high bar to match in working with Dundalk’s business community.
So, as we say farewell to Dotty, I hope that you also welcome our newest colleague, Cathy Dailey-Hurley.
