Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Named
John Pynakker has been named the Executive Director of the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce, with his new full-time position going into effect today. He was the interim executive director following the departure of Elaine Spencer, who left the chamber in December after a leave of absence. Several people applied for the position and it was narrowed down to four before Pynakker was chosen. Pynakker says his first priority will be to improve the communication between chamber members and the chamber staff and to make the members aware of the many membership benefits that they are not currently taking advantage of. There are more than 600 members of the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce, and Pynakker says members have a great opportunity to advertise what they do for free to the other members as well as the community. Pynakker is also the owner of Travel Network, which is a local travel agency, serving the Tri-State.
