Annual Meeting recognizes Volunteers
February 3, 2017
At the Annual Meeting, each year, we celebrate the many successes of the past year and preview our exciting plan of action for the coming year, as we swear in the new Board of Directors and announce the Chairman’s Cup Recipient and Ambassador of the Year.
2016 was a year of record setting events and success. Thank you to those who worked so hard and contributed to make it great. Thanks to you, the Chamber continues to succeed because of our members’ and volunteers’ involvement and dedication to this organization.
Each Year, the Brenda Dozier Hollis Chairman’s Cup is awarded to recipients for their efforts, contributions and dedication to the Chamber and our communities. Brenda was dedicated to this Chamber and served as an advocate for getting new leaders and younger people involved with the Chamber. These honorees have worked tirelessly to grow the Chamber to truly represent and engage our business community and region.

The Ambassadors’ mission is to promote general membership services and enhance goodwill for the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce with the highest degree of professionalism, knowledge, and integrity; mastering in Recruitment, Retention, and Referrals. Through their active role and participation in ribbon cuttings, ground breakings and events, the Chamber is able to better serve our membership. Some Ambassadors go above and beyond what is expected, well representing their business and the Chamber in the community.
Our Ambassador of the Year, Trisha Anderson, became a Chamber Ambassador because she loves to meet new people, and it was a natural fit. She embraced the mission of the Chamber Ambassadors, and right away began working to make a difference by visiting with current members, helping to recruit new members, and educating everyone she spoke to about the benefits and resources available through the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce.
She was born into a military family in Germany and through her life has lived in Panama, Japan, and the United States. Trisha graduated from Talladega High School in 2000, and holds a B.S. in Accounting from Colorado Technical University Online. She loves to sew and do crafts of all kinds.
She currently resides in Munford, AL, with her husband Brandon, a medically retired U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sergeant, and their kids Brianna, Audrey, Tamryn Che’ and Kristoffer.
