Sherry Galbraith Appointed Membership Director for TC Chamber
TRAVERSE CITY, MI ¬¬–Sherry Galbraith is the Traverse City Area Chamber’s new Director of Membership, and will head up the Chamber’s upcoming membership drive this fall.
Galbraith joined the Chamber staff in January 2012 as an account representative. In her new position she will report directly to Chamber President & CEO Doug Luciani and be a member of the Chamber’s Executive Team.
“Sherry’s tremendous record in customer service throughout her professional career made her an excellent choice for this important position,” Luciani said. “The Chamber’s strength is in its membership and we’re confident in Sherry’s abilities to develop strong ties with our members, specifically with small businesses which account for a large majority of our membership base.”
Galbraith has extensive professional experience in retail sales, and prior to joining the Chamber Team worked in commercial banking sales. She’s lived in the Traverse City area since 1996 and is active in the Old Town Playhouse, is a Junior Achievement volunteer and a member of the Traverse Bay Sunrise Rotary Club.
“Hit the ground running is what I will do,” Galbraith said. “The Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce is so vast a resource to businesses of all sizes, that it’s sometimes hard to grasp. I see myself in the role of Director of Membership to help with that challenge – to create awareness of what the Chamber does and how it impacts our community.”
“I have a lot of ideas, some new, some old, some non-conventional and some tried-and-true and I know I have the support of an experienced and talented staff as well as a dedicated, forward-thinking board behind me,” Galbraith said. “I look forward to working with our long-time members, as well as new businesses that join the Chamber, to advance our mutual goal of continuing to grow Northern Michigan’s economy.”
Galbraith’s husband, Dan, is the branch manager for MBank in Traverse City. Her oldest son, Aaron, is a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps. The couple has two sons, Noah, 2, and six-month-old Asher.
