Chico Chamber of Commerce announces new associate vice president

The Chico Chamber of Commerce recently announced hiring longtime member Kelsey Torres to fill the newly created position of associate vice president.

In that role, Torres (pictured) will work closely with President and CEO Katie Simmons to implement the organization’s recently released 10-year Community Vision, which outlines expectations for various aspects of the community, including public safety, according to a Chico Chamber press release. Torres distinguished herself during the interview process with her years of experience with nonprofit organizations and familiarity with the community.

“This, in many ways, feels like the opportunity of a lifetime because of my deep appreciation for Chico and my dedication to our community,” Torres said in the statement.
