The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce today announced a leadership reorganization with the elimination of the position of President and CEO.

            “As we continue to move the Chamber forward, it was necessary to reorganize the leadership of the Chamber’s staff in order to reduce overhead expenses,” said John Musella, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

“Like many non-profits and service organizations in our community, we have been faced with difficult decisions as we reorganize to best meet the needs of our members and our business community,” said Musella.

            Musella continued, “I have personally known Lois Bauccio for a number of years, both in her recent role with the Chamber, and her previous tenure at the Child and Family Center.  She has been a friend to me and a great asset to the entire Santa Clarita Valley community.  This was a very difficult decision.”

The Executive Committee will be managing the Chamber with the remaining support staff, while reviewing various options on how to reorganize the Chamber to further the interests of its members.

“Tough decisions are never easy.  However, this change will allow the Chamber to focus on member services and promoting the Santa Clarita business community.”
