NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Chamber of Commerce has hired a program coordinator to help build its local base.

City native Cathryn "Catie" McDonough was hired in November to take on the role of program coordinator and will work with current members to grow the chamber's influence and anew businesses for membership.

The NACC was created in January 2013 with the goal of providing support to the North Adams business community. McDonough will allow the chamber to continue to build on the strong relationships formed in the past year, said chamber President Glenn Maloney.

"We have high hopes for Catie in the coming months as she works to establish goals and priorities to enable her to become a close partner with the North Adams business community," Maloney said.

McDonough is a graduate of Drury High School and, in 2009, of Emerson College, where she studied multimedia journalism. She also earned a master's degree from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas in sport management. In the past several years, she  gained experience in corporate sales, marketing and business development through her positions with the First Tee of Southern Nevada, Healthworks Fitness Centers for Women and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

"I'm excited to be back in the area. I'm looking forward to helping develop the chamber and business community," said McDonough. "I'd really like to establish a sense of collaboration among member businesses and make the Chamber a valuable resource."

The chamber works closely with other Northern Berkshire entities, including the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce.

"The board of directors of the North Adams Chamber of Commerce has become great working partners with the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce," said that chamber's Executive Director Jennifer Civello. "I'm looking forward to continuing to grow the relationship between our two chambers and serving the Northern Berkshire region together."

Through networking events, trade expos, and active engagement, McDonough hopes to encourage more business owners to join in the coming year.

"A good chamber of commerce is useful for everyone in the community. The more businesses we can get to join, the more we’ll be able to provide in the way of resources, education, referrals, and marketing," McDonough said.

"On behalf of the North Adams Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors I would like to welcome Catie. We are very excited at the skill and experience she brings to this young endeavor," Maloney continued. "In the coming months, we all look with excitement to begin to add some structure to the plans we have for the next year."

McDonough will be at Luma's Muffin & Mug on Main Street at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 19.
