Ann McCurdy

The Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce’ Board of Directors is expected to begin the search for a new Chamber Executive Director. The move follows word today that current Executive Director Ann McCurdy has tendered her resignation, effective at the end of July. McCurdy started with the Chamber in 2006, and was named Executive Director in 2007.

She says there’s no particular reason for her resignation, other than to have a “happier, healthier lifestyle,” and spend more time with her kids. She intends to be a “full-time mom” to her three children, ages 5, 3 and six-months old.

Her husband, John McCurdy, is a Community Development Specialist for SWIPCO (The Southwest Iowa Planning Council). Ann says he fully supports her decision. Ann says she’s enjoyed her time spent as Chamber Director, and is looking forward to seeing who her replacement will be.
