Oregon Frontier Chamber to start new chapter

The Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce announces a significant transition as K’Lynn Lane, the dedicated and accomplished Executive Director, prepares to step into a new professional role after nearly 11 years of service.

During Lane’s tenure as Executive Director, the Chamber has played a pivotal role in driving positive change and progress across the tri-county region, leaving a profound impact on communities and businesses alike.

“It is with a mix of gratitude and excitement that I share this news with our valued members and friends,” Lane stated. “My time as Executive Director has been a remarkable journey of growth and partnership. I am truly honored to have witnessed the incredible achievements we’ve accomplished together, and I am thrilled to continue serving our communities in my new capacity at The Ford Family Foundation.”

While Lane will be stepping away from the role of Executive Director, she remains deeply committed to the mission of the Chamber and the prosperity of the Oregon Frontier region. She will continue to live in Condon and to advocate for small and rural communities in Eastern Oregon.

The Board of Directors extends their gratitude to K’Lynn Lane for her unwavering dedication and transformative leadership. “We have been privileged to work alongside K’Lynn and we are excited to see her take on new challenges while maintaining her commitment to the Chamber’s vision,” shared Stephen Allen, Board President.

Reflecting on her time with the Chamber, Lane expressed, “I am incredibly proud of the progress we have achieved together, particularly in fostering growth within our rural communities, piloting a successful rural regional main street approach, and creating a team of community ambassadors that are driving local initiatives and making a difference! The Chamber’s dedication to our region’s prosperity has been the driving force of my career, and I am confident that this organization will continue its impactful journey under new leadership.”

The Oregon Frontier Chamber of Commerce remains grateful for the unforgettable memories, valuable experiences, and enduring friendships K’Lynn has contributed to the organization. The Chamber looks forward to continuing its legacy of progress and prosperity for the Oregon Frontier region.
