Three employees resign from Chamber of Commerce

The executive director of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce and two office administrators have resigned from their positions.

Eva Collins, Cindy Byam and Jana Wiley have all resigned within the span of a few weeks.

Collins said she resigned because of personal reasons.

“After considerable thought and deliberation, I have determined I must regretfully submit my resignation for personal reasons,” Collins said in a statement. “I feel assured that the executive board and board members’ dedication will continue to skillfully shepherd the Zionsville chamber staff and members.”

Byam said also she resigned because of personal reasons.

“I was just interested in doing something else in my life,” she said. “I just became a grandmother recently, so I have that.”

Chamber President Bryan Traylor said all three will continue to work until replacements for their respective positions are found.

“There’s no hard feelings between anybody,” he said. “They’re all        committed to sticking around until we find replacements or come up with an interim plan.”

Byam said her last day will be Friday, April 13.

“I felt that would be plenty of time to train someone else for the job,” she said. “I’d be willing to stay a little longer if I needed to.”

Traylor said the search for replacements has already begun.

“We formed a search committee,” he said. “We’ll fill (Collins’) position before we fill the other two. We’ll be accepting resumes until (Wednesday) April 11.”

Traylor said the process should take 60 days.

“That is all it should take theoretically,” he said. “If someone outstanding comes out of the woodwork before then, then we’ll take less time.”

Traylor said the chamber should run smoothly after losing three people.

“(Byam and Wiley) have been organized enough and left a book of what to do and when throughout the year,” he said. “Our committees have been very involved, and there shouldn’t be much of an issue. We’ll miss them for sure.”

Wiley could not be reached for comment as of press time.
