Patrick Siler has resigned from his position as the Executive Director of the Schroon Lake area Chamber Of Commerce after five months on the job.
Siler, an attorney and co-founder of ADK Shakes, was hired after an extensive search when the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce board of directors created the position earlier this year.
Part of Siler's mission was to boost chamber membership, attract new businesses and build on Schroon's reputation as a premiere tourism destination by attracting new year round events.
The annoucnemt was made by Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce President Tony Kostecki.
Here is the official press-release:
Dear Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Members:
I regret to inform you that Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Patrick Siler submitted his letter of resignation to the Chamber's Board of Directors. Mr. Siler's last day was Friday, September 12, 2014. Unfortunately after 5 months on the job, Mr. Siler decided that the position was not a good fit for him.
As valued members of our organization, the Board and I wanted to make sure that you were aware of his resignation directly from us rather than through the grapevine.
The Chamber Board will be working to fill the position as soon as we're able. In the interim, please direct any questions regarding Chamber business to me or Ms. Shelby Davis, our Vice-President.
Thank you for your continued support of the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce and for your commitment to the business of Adirondack Community in the Schroon Lake Region.
Tony Kostecki, President
Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce
