FARMINGTON — The resignation of the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce executive director has prompted a restructuring of the organization, including a reduction in hours at the chamber’s welcome center in Farmington.

The chamber on Friday announced the their leader, Stacie Bourassa, will be leaving Friday to take a job with the United Way of the Tri-Valley Area, where she will be finance administrator.

According to a statement from Bourassa, the chamber’s board of directors will oversee the restructuring. The welcome center will have reduced hours but the 24-hour kiosk will remain open.

Despite the change, the chamber plans to keep producing the annual welcome guide and hosting its signature community events, she states.

Bourassa noted that the chamber has struggled recently to offset declines in membership dues, which are the organization’s main source of revenues. The board and other staff members are committed to keep working to deliver and grow the chamber’s services to the community, she added.
