Wednesday was Weyrick-Cooper's last day as the chamber's outreach manager. Lane said she helped boost attendance at meetings in the past year and increased the group's social media efforts "five notches."

Weyrick-Cooper is excited to create new events and market programs for one of her family's favorite hangouts — the library.

"We're big fans of the library," she said. "My 5-year-old son uses it frequently. Their children's program is one of our incredible community resources. Through my work with the chamber, I've gotten to know the director (Sandra Lang). I looked at the position and became attracted."

Weyrick-Cooper said she thought there was no way she would leave the chamber. She is excited to continue outreach efforts with the group on a volunteer basis. She remains thankful for her there.

"I feel like I owe them a lot," she said. "They took me in with open arms, and I have such a respect for what the chamber does in the community.

"I'm hoping in my library position I'll be able to be the chamber representative."
