Earlier this year , The Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce went through some changes. It hired a new President/CEO. He comes from Murray, Kentucky where he led the Chamber of Commerce there. He also spent many years as a small business owner.
Lance Allison says he spent childhood vacations on Panama City Beach and is glad to be back as a resident with his wife and three children.
He says he looks forward to taking his experience and using them toward helping businesses on Panama City Beach. He says while tourism is key, the Chamber's job is to support the businesses that rely on tourists when they get here.
The Beach Chamber works with the Tourist Development Council, and the Bay County Chamber as part of a collaborative effort.
