Sara Garcia as the Interim President/CEO of the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce
The Midlothian Chamber of Commerce has announced Sara Garcia as the Interim President/CEO of the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce. Garcia, who currently serves as the Membership Specialist for the Chamber, joined the Chamber staff in 2008.
Prior to her tenure at the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce, Garcia served as the Community Relations and Member Relations Specialist for the Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce.
“I look forward to serving the Midlothian Chamber in a new capacity,” Garcia said. “The Chamber has afforded me the opportunity to grow professionally while learning more about the Midlothian community.”
Prior to entering the Chamber industry, Garcia was the Community Relations Officer for Texas Trust Credit Union where she served as the primary liaison for the Arlington and Grand Prairie business community.
“Sara has proven herself to be a capable and responsive advocate for the Midlothian business community and the Chamber members,” said Glen Carlisle, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. “We are excited to have someone like Sara that can provide leadership in this period of transition so that we can continue to offer excellent programs, services and benefits to our members.”
Garcia is an active member of the Midlothian Rotary Group, and she and husband Romeo have one daughter, Juliet.
The announcement follows the resignation of current President/CEO Amanda Miller, CCE, who has accepted a position with Meeting Professionals International. A farewell reception is planned from 2-4 p.m. for Friday, August 13 at the Chamber of Commerce.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Midlothian Chamber,” Miller said. “It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to a new challenge. I plan to stay in the community and stay involved with the Midlothian friends that I have made. I leave the Chamber in good hands with the current board and staff that are in place.”
