The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new vice president of membership in late November to head their division of over 1,200 business members.
Rebecca Dickenson joined the Chamber after years of working within the Chapel Hill-Carrboro business community. As vice president of membership, Dickenson serves as the contact point for all member businesses and directs the staff and activities of the Chamber’s membership division.
She previously served as the advertising director at The Daily Tar Heel, overseeing the newspaper’s advertising staff. Through this position, Dickenson gained contacts with local businesses, which she says is an asset in her new job.
“(Dickenson’s) role is to really help local businesses make the most of their membership with the chamber,” said Katie Loovis, vice president for external affairs for the Chamber. “We want to make being a member of the Chamber easy. We want to make it easy and valuable, and that’s her role.”
Loovis said Dickenson’s wealth of experience made her a good fit for the position.
