Lawrence chamber to narrow its search

By Nancy Glasscock, The Decatur Daily

MOULTON — The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce will narrow its search for a president next week, a member said.
Chamber members Kenneth Brackins, Danny Whitmon and Kathy Graham are leading a search committee to replace former chamber President Vicki Morese.
Morese will retire at the end of December after about six years with the chamber.
“We’ve got an advertisement out, and I think it’s going to run probably through the rest of this week; then we’ll start looking at the individuals who applied,” Brackins said.
He said he didn’t know how many applications were submitted.
Morese began her career in 1979 as director of the Moulton Parks and Recreation Department. She later took a job as a special events programmer for Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She also owned and operated Manley and Associates Event Management Co. while in Florida.
After returning to North Alabama, she became the special events director for Decatur-Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Continue involvement
Morese said she will continue her involvement with the annual Chicken and Egg Festival as a volunteer event coordinator.
Applications will be accepted only by mail and must be postmarked by Dec. 7.
Qualifications include a bachelor’s degree, communication skills, computer knowledge and experience working with volunteers. For a complete job description, salary range and application, visit the chamber’s Web site at www.lawrencealaba
