Tammy Tinsley is the new face of the Logan County Chamber of Commerce. She is an outstanding feather in the cap of progress, bringing with her far reaching experience and networking capabilities, as well as a dedicated and hardworking ethic. With all of Tinsley’s tools for success, she possesses the one thing you need in a position such as hers… a caring for community.

“I love Logan County. I have lived her all of my life, and I look forward to being in the position and having the opportunities to continue growth and prosperity for generations to come,” said the new director.

Tinsley is no stranger to assignment. She has worked for the past decade as a Primary Care Manager for Kentucky with the American Cancer Society. This position kept her running all over the state and back and forth to Frankfort.

“My job at the chamber is not that different then what I am used to,” said Tinsley. “I will be using my experience to retain, create and work with other local and state agencies to do what is best for Logan County. I am so excited to work for the people who live here, and to help bring in more families who will benefit from our rich heritage.”

One of the first jobs for Tinsley as director will be the Tobacco & Heritage Festival which is quickly approaching in October. This will keep her busy as she learns from others and gets her feet wet so-to-speak. After, Tinsley has set a goal for herself and the chamber, which is to become recognized by the state by becoming a Kentucky Certified Chamber.

“Our chamber is one of the best,” said Tinsley. “It is time for the whole state to see us shine. Becoming a Kentucky Certified Chamber will open up additional opportunities for Logan County. It is a tremendous honor, one which Logan County is ready for.”

KCCE has developed the Chamber Certification Program, the only program of its kind in the Commonwealth, which has three purposes. First, it defines standards of excellence for chambers throughout the state. Through the application process, it also provides chamber opportunity to review and improve business practices as well as programs that benefits members. Lastly, KCCE certification distinguishes chambers that are doing it right as strong, effective leaders in Kentucky’s business community.

The mission of the Logan County Chamber of Commerce is to promote and develop strong business, and foster a more vibrant economy through leadership, education, government affairs, and community development, resulting in a better quality of life for all of Logan’s citizens.

The Logan County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a membership July 11-15. Chamber ambassadors will be hitting the streets to connect with possible future chamber members. Some of the benefits to becoming a chamber member include:

Ribbon cuttings/ground breaking events/renovation events

Networking with other chamber members at: Coffee Hour, Lunch Box, and After 5

Government relation advocacy

Small Business Appreciation

Chamber newsletter

Committees and councils to participate in Business Development Resources through Western Kentucky University Small Business Center and the Kentucky Small Business Center

One free chamber mailing labels for business promotion

Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Liaison

Chamber Chat television appearance

Free use of the chamber board room

Free listing on the chamber website and Facebook site

These are just some of the items the Chamber offers its members, and there are more to come.

“I am committed to continuing the hard work that has been done before me,” said Tinsley. “I am committed to the people who live in this community, the industry and businesses that rely on us to be their voice.”
