Chamber as conference center manager makes sense
One of La Grande’s best assets, the Blue Mountain Conference Center, is under new management these days. Here’s wishing the Union County Chamber of Commerce all success in running it.
For more than a decade, the facility, with its banquet room, kitchen and catering area, board room, conference and teleconference rooms, was managed by Shaneen Burgette, Carolyn Gilbert and Judy Loudermilk, collectively known as BGL.
But the time came recently when members of BGL had to move on to other things. The conference center foundation and the chamber worked out a new deal.
With its many contacts inside and outside the community, the chamber, headed by Judy Hector, should be able to bring more events to the center and improve on services that were already outstanding.
