What’s next for the Rome Floyd Chamber: With Missy Kendrick set to start as president of economic development for the community, the next question is what about leadership at the Rome Floyd Chamber? Jeanne Krueger has been serving as interim director since Al Hodge left as 21 years as president and chief executive officer. The chamber’s focus has changed with the forced removal of the economic development operations. We checked with chamber chair Elaine Abercrombie on Wednesday for an update: “We are working toward that…we will keep you posted.” Krueger has done an excellent job maintaining chamber operations in what has been a difficult year.
