Dear Chamber Members and Community,

It is with both a profound sense of sadness and gratitude that we announce the departure of the Superior Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Director, Deana Miller. Deana will be leaving the post after the Superior Fourth of July Festival and we are announcing the open position and search effort for a new Executive Director.

During her time with the Chamber, Deana ensured the smooth operations of our regular events, implemented new programs, and collaborated with regional partners to secure additional funding for Chamber operations through grants. Plus, in the aftermath of the Marshall Fire, Deana has been instrumental in the relief efforts. Organizing sponsorships that supplied meals to thousands of displaced community members, reaching out to area businesses to see what support was needed, bringing attention to local businesses’ needs through the media, securing a space for a free Business Resource Center, and educating both businesses and residents on the funding available to assist them in getting back on their feet. The effort was, no doubt, daunting. But, she handled the adversity with grace, poise, and a singular focus on helping in any way she could.

Deana said “The Chamber has given me such a wonderful opportunity to use my strengths, and I leave the Chamber in a strong position to help the community through the next phase of the Marshall Fire recovery and building the new downtown. I am happy to have accomplished so much in such a short amount of time. I loved connecting with the Chamber’s membership and I appreciated the welcoming nature of the tight-knit community it enjoys. I will take long-lasting friendships with me.”

Suffice to say, the Superior Chamber Board is extremely thankful for her efforts on behalf of both our organization as well as the community as a whole. And, we wish her nothing but luck as she focuses on her family and new opportunities ahead.

If you have any questions about the transition or the organization, please reach out to the Board of Directors at Please see the Executive Director job description on our website.
